UK Data - GBP/USD, Come to Papa

The GBP/USD has retreated for 3rd sessions in a row so far (although the Wednesday US session is not over yet). 

Jobs Data:

I have been waiting for a buy-on-dip set up in GBP/USD, which appears to be developing. The 7.2% unemployment rate, a tick above the 7.1% from the previous release could have added pressure to the GBP/USD, though the claimant count data beat estimates, posting a -27.6K figure, which means 27.6K fewer citizens applied for unemployment. This does not necessarily translate to employment, but is generally a good thing for the economy.

Looking at the cable, I am just thinking: come to papa!

I continue to wait for the daily stochastic to complete a bearish cycle toward 20 and price to either settle around 1.66 or fall toward 1.65 before going in the 4H chart for an entry.

Is anyone trading the current dip? If so, what is(are) your target(s)?
