- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.5664, 1.5551, 1.5444
- Resistance: 1.5801, 1.6021, 1.6241
The British Pound continued to push higher in the wake of the UK general election but negative RSI divergence warns a pullback may be ahead. A daily close back below the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 1.5664 exposes the 1.5551-4 area (February 26 high, 50% level). Alternatively, a push above the 0.76.4% Fib at 1.5801 clears the way for a test of the 100% expansion at 1.6021
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
