- Resistance: 0.7851, 0.7896, 0.7953
The Euro continued downward against the British Pound having completed a bearish Triangle chart formation last week. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansionat 0.7803 exposes the September 30 low at 0.7765. Alternatively, a turn above Triangle floor support-turned-resistance at 0.7851 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% level at 0.7896.
We entered short EURGBP at 0.7840, initially targeting 0.7803. A stop-loss is set to trigger on a daily close above 0.7877. We will take profit on half of the position and move the stop-loss to breakeven once the first objective is reached.
