The British Pound may have carved a near-term top against the US Dollar, marked by the appearance of a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. The pair has edged past support in the 1.6667-80 area, defined by the January 24 high and the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, exposing the 23.6% level at 1.6593. A further push beneath that targets the 38.2% Fib at 1.6452. Alternatively, a move back above 1.6667 eyes the February 17 highat 1.6822.
Risk/reward considerations argue against taking a trade at this point and we will remain continue to monitor price action from the sidelines for now, looking for a viable selling opportunity.
