Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Euro surges to an eight-month high versus the British Pound
  • Risk/reward considerations argue against a long trade for now

The Euro looks poised to continue higher after jumping to the highest level in eight months and reclaiming a foothold above the 0.89 figure against the British Pound. The move follows a month of sideways consolidation and hints the rising trend set from mid-April lows has resumed.

Near-term resistance is now at 0.8973, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 50% level at 0.9040. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 23.6% Fib at 0.8891 exposes the 0.8840-52 area (14.6% expansion, January 16 high).

The EURGBP short position activated at 0.8778 was stopped out. Current positioning argues for taking up the long side but structuring a trade with acceptable risk/reward parameters seems challenging at least until 0.8891 can be seen to hold as support. With that in mind, opting to stay flat seems most prudent.
