Talking Points:


  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8326 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.8281 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 0.8399 (Mar 19 high)


Euro technical positioning hints a turn lower against the British Pound may be in the cards after prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. The first layer of support lines up at 0.8326, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8281. Near-term resistance is at 0.8399, the March 19 high.


Satisfying at least a 1:1 risk/reward ratio and using a stop-loss activated on a daily closing basis (as is the case with our strategy) calls for a short entry price no lower than 0.8368. While that is within a hair of the current market, we are mindful of the near-term upside bias implications of the break above trend line resistance set from August 2013 and will opt not to sell the pair.
