- EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8167 (Jan 22 low)
- Resistance: 0.8260-0.8325 (trend line cluster), 0.8390 (38.2% Fib exp.)
A bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below resistance in a falling trend line cluster (now in the 0.8268-0.8330 area) continues to warn that the Euro may soon turn lower against the British Pound once again. Near-term support is at 0.8167, the January 22 low. Alternatively, a reversal through the trend line cluster exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.8390.
While risk/reward parameters have improved in line with what we discussed last week, we will opt against taking a short position. The emergence of positive RSI divergence warns of ebbing bearish momentum and hints a larger upside reversal may be brewing. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until greater directional clarity emerges.
