On Friday, EUR/GBP soared to 0.9052 -its highest level in over six months. The market closed the weekly candlestick in the green with 4.5% gain.

EURGBP daily price chart 20-03-20. zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that on Friday EUR/GBP rallied to a higher trading zone 0.9015 – 0.9500. Yesterday, the price rebounded from the high end of the zone eyeing a test of the low end of it.

Thus, a close below the low end of the zone signal a possible price fall towards 0.8832. Further close below that level could extend this move towards 0.8687. In that scenario, the daily and weekly support levels underlined on the chart should be kept in focus, as some traders might exit/join the market around these points.

In turn, any failure in closing below the low end may encourage EURGBP bulls to push towards the high end of the zone. Further close above that levels opens the door for more bullishness towards 0.9803. That said, the psychological resistance levels underscored on the chart would be worth monitoring.
