The British pound continues to press lower and is now testing the 1.23 handle as the 50-day moving average caps any upside move. The EU and UK today kicked-off their latest round of trade talks with both sides wanting to make progress although both are unwilling to make the first move. If no middle ground can be found this week, Sterling could fall further. GBP/USD is touching a new one-month low and has now fallen by five big figures in the last three weeks. Support from the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at 1.2306 is being tested and if this level is breached, 1.2160 is likely to be the next level of support. The 50-dma at 1.2406 should provide the first area of short-term resistance.

EUR/GBP continues to press higher and is at its highest level in three months. Initial resistance is likely to be seen at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.9213. The pair have accelerated off the strong uptrend line that started at the end of April and any sell-off should be contained by the 38.2% Fib retracement at 0.9035 and recent lows all the way down to 0.9000.

The FTSE 100 is currently caught in a moving average pincer movement with support from the 50-dma at 6,102 and resistance from the 20-dma at 6,224 which guards the 50% Fib retracement at 6,233. The market is neither oversold or overbought, using the CCI indicator, and the FTSE will need a macro-driver to break its current restrictive trading range. If the 50-dma folds, support at 6,028 will likely be tested before 5,932. Last Tuesday’s high at 6,342 should hold in the short-term.
