Forex: GBP/USD Technical Analysis ? Ready to Turn Higher Anew?

February 25, 2014

Talking Points:



  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6593 (23.6% Fib ret.), 1.6452 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.6667-80 (Jan 24 high, 14.6% Fib ret.), 1.6822 (Feb 17 high)



    The British Pound is attempting to launch a recovery against the US Dollar. Prices are testing above support-turned-resistance in the 1.6667-80 area, defined by the January 24 high and the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a close above this barrier targeting the February 17 highat 1.6822. Alternatively, a push through the 23.6% level at 1.6593 aims for the 38.2% Fib at 1.6452.



    Clear-cut confirmation of an upside reversal is incomplete at this point. On the other hand, a short position with prices trading above near-term resistance seems like a dangerous proposition. We will wait on the sidelines for greater clarity to emerge.
