- Euro drops most in 7 months, takes out April low vs. British Pound
- Prices poised to confirm major Head & Shoulders topping pattern
The Euro plunged against the British Pound, issuing the largest one-day drop in seven months and taking out April’s swing bottom. Prices sit within a hair of confirming a large Head and Shoulders topping pattern that may mark the end of the upswing from mid-November and the resumption of the long-term decline in play since late 2008.
Near-term support is at 0.7683, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 50% level at 0.7549. The first significant level of resistance comes in at 0.7849, the 23.6% Fib, with a reversal back above that paving the way for a challenge of a horizontal pivot at 0.7928.
