EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: Waiting to Confirm Short Trade

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: Waiting to Confirm Short Trade

Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7819, 0.7777, 0.7740
  • Resistance: 0.7880, 0.7915, 0.7950

The Euro may be setting up a reversal downward against the British Pound after putting in a Spinning Top candlestick. Near-term support is at 0.7819, October 3 low, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the July 2012 bottom at 0.7777. Alternatively, a move above the 0.7873-80 area marked by the July 23 low and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement opens the door for a challenge of the 7909-15 zone bracketed by a previously broken triangle pattern bottom and the 50% level.

A Spinning Top candle points to indecision and is not an actionable trade signal in isolation. As such, we will remain on the sidelines for now until adequate confirmation to enter short materializes.
