GBP/USD Technical Analysis - Prices formed a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick on a retest of resistance at a falling trend line set from early January, hinting at renewed weakness ahead. Near-term support is at 1.5121, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that targeting the 38.2% level at 1.4873. Trend line resistance is now at 1.5177. A push above that targets the 1.53 figure. We continue to hold short for now.
