GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Buyers Clear February Top

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5551, 1.5444, 1.5308
  • Resistance: 1.5664, 1.5801, 1.6021

The British Pound advanced to the highest level in four months against the US Dollar in the wake of the UK general election outcome. Near-term resistance is at 1.5664, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 1.5801. Alternatively, a reversal below the 1.5551-4 area (February 26 high, 50% Fib) opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% expansion at 1.5444.

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.
