Talking Points:

  • EUR/GBP Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8342 (23.6% Fib ret.), 0.8306 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 0.8399 (Mar 19 high), 0.8420 (38.2% Fib ret.)

The Euro may be carving a top against the British Pound after prices put in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick patternbelow the 0.84 figure. Initial support is at 0.8342, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8306. Near-term resistance is at 0.8399, the March 19 high, followed by the 38.2% Fib expansion at 0.8420.

While the rebound over the past two sessions has aligned risk/reward parameters in favor of a short position, we will opt to stand aside. We are mindful of the near-term upside bias implications of the break above trend line resistance set from August 2013 two weeks ago and will wait for greater confirmation before expressing a bearish view.
