Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8219 (14.6% Fib ret.), 0.8167 (Jan 22 low)
  • Resistance: 0.8258 (23.6% Fib ret.), 0.8316-20 (38.2% Fib ret., trend line)

The Euro began a recovery against the British Pound as expected after prices produced a bullish Piercing Line candlestick formation, hinting a double bottom is being formed the January 22 low (0.8167). A daily close above resistance at 0.8258, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, targets a falling trend line set from late October at 0.8316 and the 38.2% level at 0.8320. Alternatively, a turn back below the 14.6% Fib at 0.8219 exposes 0.8167 anew.

Risk/reward considerations argue against a trade at current levels as the pair trades wedged in close proximity to relevant up- and downside barriers. We will remain flat for now, looking for a move to trend line resistance to produce a selling opportunity.
