GBP/USD Takes Aim at Channel Resistance

Ilya Spivak

GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat

Prices broke above resistance at 1.5408, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, exposing a rising channel top at 1.5527 and the 50% level at 1.5586. The 1.5408 mark has been recast as support, with a reversal back below that eyeing the channel bottom at 1.5228 and the 23.6% retracement at 1.5216.Current positioning doesn’t offer an actionable trade setup and we will stand aside for now.
