This drop could be attributed to USD strength on better than expected US PMI, or overall profit-taking mentality of the market as Brexit timeline narrows down with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May pledging to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty by no later than the end of March 2017.

This could be yet another test of an important support, leading to formation of a Trip-Top reversal chart pattern. That is of course, in case the market participants are not further panicked on the thought of a Brexit execution, and if UK continues to release awesome economic data.

The good technical news is that the Ichimoku cloud is thinning out and flattening on the daily cart. This indicates a potential of a long-term consolidation while GBPUSD back to post-Brexit lows. The consolidation range is projected to be between 1.2830 and 1.3350

During the London session the UK is expected to released their Construction PMI at 8:30 AM GMT to further shake the GBP crosses. A worse than expected result could push the GBP/USD pair down to new lows.

Wednesday: On Wednesday Australia’s Retail Sales will be out 12:30 AM GMT and UK UK Services PMI will be out during the London session at 8:30 AM GMT. The ISM Non-Manufacutring Composite is scheduled to be out at 2 PM GMT during the New York session, and the combination could create further volatility in the GBP/USD pair.

Trading Strategy – GBPUSD Testing Fibonacci

Bullish Scenario:

Only a break above the Ichimoku cloud would signal a long-term reversal.

Short-term strategy: For now, we need to wait and see if the pair is going to bottom-out once again at 1.2830.

A bullish engulfing patter could be the perfect signal for this short term scenario. Target could be set at the pivot level of 1.3125 or  1.3350 in extension.

STEP ONE: You need to first calculate your risk appetite as well as risk tolerance before picking your target.

Bearish Scenario: While sentiment remains bearish, it is too soon to tell if GBP/USD is going to create brand new lows or not.

Patience is key.
