EURGBP is currently making its fourth daily bear candle in a row and is set to break its recent near four-month uptrend on the weekly chart. The rally, in excess of 11% from the May 5 low at 0.8490 has been driven primarily by fundamental drivers as well as the chart showing a strong oversold signal back at the start of May. The pair is nearing a supportive zone of recent highs/lows between 0.9190 and 0.9210 and reaction here will set the tone for the next short-term move. A move lower would bring into play the January 2 exhaustion high at 0.9116 which preceded a four-month sell-off. Overall the daily chart remains positive unless this level is broken and closed below.
