GBP/USD: Weekly close below the 1.1841 January low to signal a much deeper sell-off.

GBP/USD has broken support from its recent low and 200-DMA at 1.1914/12 to turn the spotlight on the key 1.1841 January low. A weekly close below here would warn of an important bearish “double top”, economists at Credit Suisse report.

Move above resistance at 1.2144/48 needed to ease immediate fears of a top

“A sustained break below the 1.1841 January low, especially post payrolls this Friday would complete a bearish ‘double top’ to signal a much deeper sell-off, and likely a stronger USD rally more broadly, with support seen next at the 38.2% retracement of the 2022/2023 rally at 1.1648/46. Whilst we would look for this to hold at first, we would note that the ‘double top measured objective’ would be seen set much lower at 1.1233.”

“Above resistance at 1.2144/48 is needed to ease immediate fears of a top, although we would need to see 1.2270 cleared in our view to warn of strength back to 1.2447/49.”
