- Support: 1.5121, 1.4976, 1.4888
- Resistance: 1.5265, 1.5354, 1.5498
The British Pound snapped a three-day losing streak against the US Dollar after turning lower as expected having put in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5121 exposes the 1.4976-1.5004 area (38.2% level, range top resistance-turned-support). Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib at 1.5265 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% Fib at 1.5354.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
