Learn from our Mistakes!!!- Here are some of the top lessons DailyFX analysts suffered, absorbed and learned from personal experience in 2018 – We won’t be making them again!!

EURGBP Relief Rally is Just That, a Correction from Oversold Conditions

EURGBP is currently bouncing off oversold conditions after hitting a 20-month low late-Thursday after losing 5 big figures from the start of January. The Euro is under pressure from a raft of negative economic data and sentiment readings suggesting that growth is slowing sharply while price pressures remain stubbornly weak. The latest ECB Quarterly Survey shows Euro-Zone growth falling to 1.5% in 2019 – down from 1.8% in the prior quarters projections – with inflation also falling to 1.5% from a prior reading of 1.7%. In addition, media talk continues that Germany, the single-blocs economic engine, will shortly downgrade its growth forecast to 1% for 2019, against previous expectations of 1.8% as trade uncertainty and Brexit fears bite.

Sterling (GBP) on the other-hand is trending higher across the board as investors continue to price-out a No Deal Brexit and price-in a soft Brexit closer to PM May’s Plan B. This growing realization that, maybe, Brexit lows across the Sterling space have already been made and a stronger British Pound lies ahead.

EURGBP is moving higher off Thursday’s 20-month low after the pair dropped into oversold territory for the first time in over three-months. This is likely to be a relief rally and reverse lower soon, especially as the 20-day moving average has dropped below the 200-day ma, flashing ongoing EURGBP negative sentiment. The pair have also touched, and just broken, below the mid-April 2018 low opening the way for longer-term re-trace back down to the April 2017 low at 0.83133.
