British Pound (GBP) Latest: EUR/GBP Breaking Lower, More Losses Possible
GBP price, news and analysis:
- EUR/GBP is looking technically weak after the sharp falls of recent weeks.
- Even though it is now at its lowest since May last year, a further drop looks likely.
EUR/GBP at risk of further losses
EUR/GBP has now broken convincingly below the support line of a symmetrical triangle pattern on the charts that dates back to the end of April last year. It is now trading at its lowest level since May 11, 2020 yet still further losses would be no surprise given that there is little support ahead of the 0.8671 low touched on April 30.

The drop has been driven both by Euro weakness and Sterling strength, with EUR undermined by poor Eurozone economic data such as Monday’s German retail sales figures showing a sharp and unexpected decline of 9.6% month/month in December. By contrast, a fast coronavirus vaccination program in the UK has raised hopes of an economic recovery.
