EURGBP – Lower Highs and Lower Lows Dominate the Chart

When considering this trade set-up, it’s is important to keep in mind that Brexit headlines can, and will, shift the value of Sterling sharply and so the trade is risky and may be prone to volatile moves. While there has been a slight positive turn in Brexit sentiment, nothing is yet agreed with the EU, while PM May also faces increasing pressure from within her own party over the exact nature of any deal. The Euro is also under pressure as the economy continues to slow down – German Q3 GDP on Wednesday is forecast to turn negative – ahead of the end of the QE (bond buying program) in December.

From a technical stance, EURGBP remains pointed towards the downside. Since the August 28 high of 0.9098, the pair has fallen to a recent low of 0.8690 and in the process has made an unbroken series of lower highs and lower lows. EURGBP also trades below all three moving averages and will find initial upside resistance at the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at 0.8803. A stop will be placed at 0.8843, just above all three DMAs and at the bottom of the October 31 candle.

The initial target – 50% of the trade – is set at 0.8690, the November 8 low with the second target all the way back to the April 17 range low at 0.8621. The entry price at 0.8774 - currently above the market level of 0.8736 – gives us some flexibility and takes into account the current low level of the RSI indicator at 40.25.
