- 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.
We entered short EURGBP at 0.7850. Prices narrowly hit our first objective at 0.7803 and we have now booked half of the profit on the trade. The remainder of the trade will remain open to capture any further downside with a stop-loss adjusted to the breakeven level (0.7850)
