GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Drops to Weekly Low

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Drops to Weekly Low

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5639, 1.5549, 1.5759
  • Resistance: 1.5750, 1.5818, 1.5929

The British Pound declined against the US Dollar as expected after prices produced a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 1.5639, the38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1.5549. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib at 1.5750 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% retracement at 1.5818.

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.
