  • Back-to-back Doji candles on GBP/USD’s daily chart indicate indecision.  
  • A bullish Doji reversal needs a daily close above 1.2339.

The GBP/USD pair defended the widely followed 50-day moving average on Tuesday and Wednesday with Doji candles.  

A Doji represents indecision in the market place. In GBP/USD’s case, the  Doji candles have appeared following a sell-off from recent highs near 1.2580 and at the 50-day MA support and represent seller exhaustion.  

That said, a bullish Doji reversal would be confirmed if the pair finds acceptance above 1.2339 – the high of Oct. 1’s Doji candle.  

On the downside, a close below the 50-day MA, currently at 1.2249, would imply a continuation of the sell-off from the recent high of 1.2582 and open the doors for 1.21.  

As of writing, the pair is trading just below 1.23, representing little change on the day.
