Technical Analysis GBP/USD Rally Extends the British Pound advanced against the US Dollar as expected after putting in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.5647, the38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1.5794. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1.5464 clears the way for a test of trend line resistance-turned-support at 1.5311.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
