GBP/USD: reversal pattern activated

The GBP/USD pair crashed in the short term as the Dollar Index rebounded. Yesterday, I talked about exhausted buyers and about a Rising Wedge pattern. The pair's trading at 1.2225 at the time of writing above today's low of 1.2203.

Fundamentally, the British Pound could lose some ground versus its rivals after the UK Flash Manufacturing PMI and Flash Services PMI came in worse than expected. On the other hand, the US reported mixed data. Durable Goods Orders and Core Durable Goods Orders came in worse than expected, while Flash Manufacturing PMI and Flash Services PMI reported better than expected data.

GBP/USD Minor Rebound!

As you can see on the H1 chart, the rate ignored the uptrend line and 1.2260 confirming a downside movement. I've told you in my last analysis that activating the Rising Wedge pattern should bring new short opportunities.

Now, it has tried to rebound to test and retest the weekly R1 (1.2250) and the 1.2260 static resistance. Technically, the former low of 1.2178 stands as a critical downside obstacle.

GBP/USD Outlook!

A new lower low, a bearish closure below 1.2178 activates a further drop and is seen as a selling signal.
