Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8087 (channel floor), 8056 (100% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance:0.8104 (76.4% Fib exp.), 0.8124-33 (trend line, 61.8% Fib exp.)

The Euro renewed its push downward against the British Pound, with prices sinking to the lowest level since January 2013. Support is seen at the bottom of a falling channel set from late April, now at 0.8087, with a break below that exposing the 100% Fibonacci expansion at 0.8056. Alternatively, a move back above the 76.4% level at 0.8104 aims for the 0.8124-33 area, marked by a falling trend line established from January and the 61.8% Fib.

Risk/reward considerations argue against taking a trade at present withprices wedged too closely between near-term up- and down-side technical barriers. We will continue to wait on the sidelines for the time being.
