Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:

GBPUSD – Sterling/dollar a potential sell from resistance

The GBPUSD seems to have found some support just above 1.6000 and could push higher back towards resistance. If that occurs we will watch the pin bar “event area” (an event area is a strategy discussed in our trading courses) that comes in from about 1.6250 – 1.6305 for a price action sell signal. What we are doing here is anticipating a potential scenario in this market based on the market’s current structure and recent price action, anticipating potential entry scenarios like this is an important aspect of trading and it’s something that will help you stay prepared and ahead of the herd of traders who trade mostly on impulse and feeling. We would also note that this anticipatory sell scenario would only be voided if price closes above the high of that long-tailed pin bar reversal from January 2nd.
