The British Pound may be carving out a double top against the US Dollar as prices show a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at 1.6822, the February 17 high. Negative RSI divergence bolsters the case for a downside scenario. Initial support is at 1.6751, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 1.6695.
We entered short at 1.6789, setting a stop-loss to be activated on a daily close above 1.6822. Profit on half of the position will be booked and the stop-loss trailed to the breakeven level once prices hit 1.6751. The remainder of the trade left to develop with subsequent downside momentum.
