Ilya Spivak

GBP/USD Technical AnalysisPrices declined as expected after putting in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at the top of a rising channel set from mid-March. Near-term support is at 1.5357, the channel bottom. A break below that targets the 1.5195-1.5249 area marked by the April 23 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. Channel resistance is now at 1.5662. We continue to hold short.
