The Euro turned lower against the British Pound as expected after producing a Shooting Star candlestick below the 0.74 figure. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansionat 0.7239 exposes 23.6% level at 0.7149. Alternatively, a move above the 0.7384-92 area (38.2% Fib retracement, March 25 high) opens the door for a test of the 50% threshold at 0.7509.
We entered short EURGBP at 0.7311 and have since booked profit on half of the trade. The rest of the position will remain in play with a stop-loss at the breakeven level (0.7311) to capture any further downside momentum.
