Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:1.6765 (trend line), 1.6711 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.6820 (23.6% Fib ret.),1.6887 (14.6% Fib ret.),

The British Pound continues to hover above three-month trend support having dropped as expected following the publication of the BOE Inflation Report. A break below a rising trend line set from February – now at 1.6765 – targets the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.6711. Initial resistance is at 1.6820, marked by the 23.6% level. A turn back above that aims for the 14.6% Fib at 1.6887.

Prices are wedged too closely between near-term up- and down-side technical barriers to justify taking a trade at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to wait on the sidelines for now.
