- EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8004, 0.7985, 0.7954
- Resistance: 0.8035, 0.8060, 0.8086
The Euro stalled after soaring to challenge a horizontal threshold capping against the British Pound since late June. Near-term resistance is in the 0.8033-35 area, marked by the aforementioned ceiling and the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basisexposing the 50% level at 0.8060. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 0.8004 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 0.7985.
Prices are wedged too tightly between near-term up- and down-side technical barriers to justify taking a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for the time being, waiting for a more compelling opportunity to present itself.
