We sold the British Pound against the US Dollar after prices produced a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern below resistance at 1.6742, the February 14 close. The trade is making progress, with prices hovering just above our initial target at 1.6593, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break below this boundary on a daily closing basis exposes the next objective at 1.6452, the 38.2% level. Near-term rising trend line support-turned-resistance is at 1.6699, with a move back above that exposing 1.6742 anew.
We will continue to hold, with a stop-loss set to be triggered a daily close above the February 17 high at 1.6822.
