- EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.7978, 0.7950, 0.7927
- Resistance:0.8023, 0.8062, 0.8081
The Euro may be on track to launch a rebound against the British Pound after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Initial resistance comes in at 0.8023, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 0.8062. Alternatively, a drop through the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.7978 targets the June 16 low at 0.7958, followed by the 38.2% level at 0.7950.
The ECB looks to be the most dovish of the leading central banks, putting the Euro at an inherent disadvantage against its G10 counterparts. As such, we will opt not pursue buying opportunities, looking to any corrective gains for an opening to enter short (as discussed in our weekly outlook).
