Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Short at 0.8824
  • Euro recoils from resistance, suffers worst two-day drop in over a month
  • Short position activated, looking for a retest of recent range floor support

The Euro looks vulnerable to deeper losses after suffering the worst two days in over a month against the British Pound. Prices recoiled from resistance capping the upside since mid-October after putting in a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern, with the medium-term range floor now in the crosshairs.

From here, a daily close below the 0.8733-46 area (September 27, November 1 lows) opens the door for a test of the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 0.8689. Alternatively, move back above former support in the 0.8842-65 zone, now recast as resistance, paves the way for a retest of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 0.8925.

Technical and risk/reward parameters appeared compelling and a short EUR/GBP position was activated at 0.8824, initially targeting 0.8746. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 0.8865. Profit on half of the trade will be booked and the stop moved to breakeven when (and if) the first objective is met.
