Notes:In my final Sterling Technical Forecast we famous that GBP/USD was approaching weekly resistance at, “the upper parallel of the descending pitchfork we’ve been tracking off the 2021 highs / 2017 swing high at 1.3658– a breach / weekly close above this threshold is needed to keep the immediate rally viable with such a scenario exposing confluent resistance around the 52-week moving average near ~1.3750s.” A topside breach yesterday registered a excessive at present at 1.3749 – time for exhaustion?

The focus is on potential near-term inflection up right here with the fast advance susceptible whereas under. Weekly assist rests with the 2017 high-week shut / 2022 yearly open at 1.3494-1.3529 – a weekly shut under this threshold would recommend this may increasingly have been a bigger flush-out and would shift the main focus in the direction of resumption for the broader downtrend. A topside breach / shut above this key resistance threshold is required to validate a bigger reversal with such a state of affairs exposing the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the May decline at 1.3835 and the 2018 high-week shut at 1.3997 – each areas of curiosity for potential topside exhaustion IF reached.

Bottom Line:Sterling has stretched into confluent resistance and whereas this breakout does threaten a bigger advance, the fast rally could also be susceptible whereas under 1.3746- watch the weekly shut. From at buying and selling standpoint, zone to scale back long-exposure / increase protecting stops – losses ought to be restricted to the February low at 1.3567 IF value is heading larger on this stretch. I’ll publish an up to date Sterling Price Outlook as soon as we get additional readability on the near-term GBP/USD technical commerce ranges.
