- EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Short at 0.9169
- Euro selloff pauses after prices hit 4-month low vs. British Pound
- Break of support below 0.88 figure to pave the way for deeper losses
A breakneck selloff that brought the Euro to the lowest level in four months against the British Pound has paused to digest near the 0.88 figure. The single currency shed nearly 6 percent in a mere three weeks after failing to overcome the high set following last year’s Brexit referendum.
Near-term support is now at 0.8774, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 0.8696. Alternatively, a turn above 0.89 figure sees the next upside barrier at 0.8977, the 38.2% Fib retracement.
Half of the EUR/GBP trade triggered at 0.9169 remains in play to capture follow-on weakness after partial profit was booked on meeting the position’s first objective. A hard stop-loss order is now in place at the breakeven level. The chart setup will be monitored for opportunities to scale back in.
