Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Thursday EUR/GBP rallied to its highest level in five weeks however, slipped back later then closed below 50-day average providing a significant bearish signal. This week, the pair continued bearish price action.

Today, EURGBP printed its lowest level in over five months and declined to a lower trading zone 0.8505 – 1.8627. Hence, a close below the high end of the zone could send the price towards the low end. Although, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

Any Failure in closing below the low end could push EUR/GBP higher towards the vicinity of 0.8726-23. Further close above it may cause a rally towards the higher vicinity of 0.8791-78. That said, the daily resistance levels underscored on the chart should be monitored.

From the daily chart, we notice EUR/CAD failed in multiple occasions to close above 50-day average generating bearish signals, the last one was on Oct 10. In the same day, the pair declined to a lower trading zone 1.4476- 1.4644 providing another bearish signal.

Thus, EURCAD may be on its way for a test of the low end of the zone. Further close below the low end could entice sellers to press the pair even lower towards the vicinity of 1.4389-79. However, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.

On the other hand, any U turn of the price would require a close above the high end of the zone which if happens it could push EURCAD towards the vicinity of 1.4736-27. Nevertheless, the weekly resistance area marked on the chart should be watched closely.
