EURGBP Analysis: Rally Continues as Brexit Fears Slam Sterling

EURGBP Analysis: Rally Continues as Brexit Fears Slam Sterling

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Sterling Price, News and Analysis

  • EURGBP remains supported and likely to hit new a new yearly high.
  • Retail clients remain net-short EURGBP – will they change positioning?

We have recently released our Q3 Trading Forecasts for a wide range of Currencies and Commodities, including GBP and EUR.

EURGBP Rally Points to a Fresh Nine-Month High

The recent weakness of Sterling can be viewed clearly in EURGBP as the pair near new highs for the year amid deepening concerns of a no-deal Brexit. EURGBP has been in a relatively tight range 0.8600 – 0.9000 range since October last year but the upside is now increasingly vulnerable to a break-out with the late August high print at 0.93067 a viable target. The weekly chart shows a bullish pattern of higher highs and higher lows, while the RSI indicator is pointing higher and has room to move further before it reaches overbought territory. EURGBP also trades above all three moving averages and has broken the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the long-term 0.6963 – 0.9345 rally at 0.88435.
