Forex Analysis: GBP/USD Short Triggered on Major Trend Line Break

Ilya Spivak

GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 1.5662, Targeting 1.5440


Prices broke multi-year rising trend line support set from mid-January 2009, hinting a major bearish reversal is in progress. We will take a small short position here (1.5662), initially targeting 1.5440 and ultimately aiming for major horizontal support at 1.5296. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 1.5878.
