- GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.5547, 1.5459, 1.5389
- Resistance: 1.5629, 1.5700, 1.5788
The British Pound continues to wait for direction cues in a familiar range below the 1.57 figure against the US Dollar. Near-term support is at 1.5547, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1.5459. Alternatively, a push above the 50% Fib retracement at 1.5629 opens the door for a challenge of the 1.5666-1.5700 area (June 24 low, 61.8% expansion).
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.
