It's been a climactic past month of price action in the British Pound. As we walked into the final week of August, GBP/USD was continuing to hold on to the sell-off that had driven the currency for much of the prior four months. Prices had just sunk down to find support at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the Brexit-move, and this was a more than 1,500 pips away from where the pair had topped-out at in mid-April. There was little by way of positivity at the time.

The first half of August was particularly brutal, when a BoE rate hike early in the month served to only hasten the declines. Sellers remained in-charge as a very uncertain future defined the outlook for the British Pound, and there was little apparent hope as Brexit negotiations drew near. We started to look at bullish setups in GBP/USD in mid-August largely on the basis of just how negative everything had become; looking for prices to pullback in the down-trend after oversold readings began to flash on both Daily and Weekly RSI readings.
