GBP/USD Technical AnalysisPrices put in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at the top of a rising channel set from mid-March (1.5552), a barrier reinforced by the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 1.5586, hinting a move lower is ahead. Initial support is at 1.5408, the 38.2% level, with a break below that targeting the channel bottom at 1.5249. Alternatively, a push above 1.5586 exposes the 61.8% Fib at 1.5764.
