Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6469-89 (61.8% Fib ret., trend line), 1.6386 (76.4% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.6536 (50% Fib ret.), 1.6604 (38.2% Fib ret.)

The British Pound continues to hold above support marked by a rising trend line set from mid-November against the US Dollar. This barrier is reinforced by the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 1.6469, with a break downward initially exposing the 76.4% level at 1.6386. Alternatively, a daily close above resistance at 1.6536 – the 50% Fib – targets the 38.2% retracement at 1.6604.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices wedged tightly between near-term up- and down-side technical barriers. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive trade setup presents itself.
