The Euro continues to gain ground against the British Pound, with five days of consecutive gains bringing it to the highest level in almost a year. A breach above the range top containing price action since mid-October 2017 seems to suggest that the dominant uptrend started in November 2015 is resuming.

Resistance is now at 0.9103, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that confirmed on a daily closing basis opening the door for a challenge of the 0.61.8% level at 0.9152. Alternatively, a move back below the 38.2% Fib at 0.9055 paves the way for a retest of the 0.9007-31 area.
