GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Attempts Recovery

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Pound Attempts Recovery

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.5471, 1.5417, 1.5329
  • Resistance: 1.5558, 1.5629, 1.5700

The British Pound corrected cautiously higher after declining to the lowest level in two weeks against the US Dollar. Near-term support is at 1.5471, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 14.6% level at 1.5417. Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib at 1.5558 clears the way for a test of the 50% retracement at 1.5629.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
