Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7060, 0.6930, 0.6868
  • Resistance: 0.7097, 0.7141, 0.7206

The Euro continued to push upward against the British Pound, clearing a falling trend line capping the upside for the past three months. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7141 exposes the 50% level at 0.7206. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% level at 0.7060 opens the door for a challenge of the 0.6930-50 area (July 17 and August 5 lows).

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
