EUR/GBP DAILY PRICE CHART (March 17 – May 22, 2020) Zoomed In
Looking at the daily chart, last week EUR/GBP broke above the neckline of the double bottom pattern located at 0.8863 and generated a bullish signal. Additionally, the price closed above the 50-day moving average highlighting the bullish outlook of the market.
Yesterday, the pair rallied to a near two-month high at 0.9000. However, the price reversed before testing the high end of the current trading zone 0.8912 -0.9015 reflecting a weaker bullish momentum.
A close below the low end of the aforementioned zone could send EURGBP towards 0.8832. A further close below that level may send the price even lower towards 0.8637. That said, the daily and weekly support levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
On the other hand, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone means that the bullish momentum is still intact and EURGBP may rally towards the high end of the high end. A further close above that level could extend this rally towards 0.9149. In that scenario, the weekly resistance levels marked on the chart should be watched closely.
