EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: Looking to Short on Bounce

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: Looking to Short on Bounce

Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Pending Short at 0.7850
  • Support: 0.7803, 0.7728, 0.7654
  • Resistance: 0.7896, 0.7953, 0.8030

The Euro moved lower against the British Pound as expected after showing a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansionat 0.7803 exposes the 0.7728-51 area marked by the July 2012 low and the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal above the 0.7873-96 zone (July 23 low, 23.6% Fib) clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 0.7953.

Entering short at current levels looks unattractive from a risk/reward perspective and we will establish an entry order to sell the pair at 0.7850. If triggered, the position will initially target 0.7803 and have a stop-loss triggered on a daily close above 0.7896.
