EURGBP – Solid Technical Support Nears

A battle of two of the current weaker currencies in the market has kept moves limited in the past few days as Brexit negotiations continue and fears that the Euro-Zone growth is weakening grow. Against other currencies, especially the USD, both GBP and EUR continue to struggle and are likely to remain weak as fundamental rule price action.

On a technical level, EURGBP is nearing a cluster of support levels that should hold unless something dramatic, and GBP positive, happens during current Brexit negotiations. On the charts, the 200-day moving average, currently at 0.8841 acts as first support with the 20- and 50-day moving averages at 0.8812 and 0.8814 close behind. To round off support levels, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level is fixed at 0.8803. This cluster of support should provide resilient in the current market and we would look to go long of a small break of the 200-day ma at 0.8835. We will keep a tight stop loss on this trade at 0.8790 and look for a short-time frame for the trade to play-out. Targets are set at 0.8935 (50%) and 0.8985 (50%).

It is worth noting that a break and close above 0.8940 breaks the sequence of lower highs started in late-August and would turn the chart slightly more bullish for the medium-term.
