Since making a new high at the test of weekly down trendline at 1.6343, Gbpusd has pulled back to its 4-hour trendline support at 1.6140s, which has so far been holding. However, the 4hr chart (shown below) has what appears to be a head and left shoulder formation, resulting from its reaction to the weekly resistance. There is a shelf of resistance at 1.6250/60 which has the potential to encourage the formation of a right shoulder for the bearish reversal. The labeled chart explains what I am thinking. If price were to test this level and is not able to breach the horizontal line drawn shown, I think it would be a good idea to look for a bearish candlestick formation to confirm entry for shorts. If this plays out, the potential target levels I’d consider are: 1.6200 (4hr up trendline), 1.6090 (past support point), and 1.6030, which is just ahead of major weekly support where a weekly right shoulder resistance got invalidated.
My previous article on this pair explains my general outlook, and should the scenario above not play out, I would concentrate on the levels mentioned in that in that post: http://winnersedgetrading.com/gbpusd-trendline-resistance-technical-analysis/
