EUR / GBP price, news and analysis:
- Negative technical configuration.
- The sentiment of IG customers also suggests lower prices.
EUR / GBP competes with a group of resistance levels and looks likely to decline if these hold up. The pair is trading on either side of trend resistance and apex of trend support, and a close below that support, and preferably the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at 0.9035, may usher in a period of falling prices.
The 20-day simple moving average has moved below the 50-day sma, a bearish sentiment setup, and these two moving averages – 20 dma at 0.9072 and 50 dma at 0.9087 – will also act in the short term. resistance. The longer term 200-dma is currently closed at 0.8951 and a breakout and close below will also add to the bearish outlook for the market. Below, the 50% Fib retracement at 0.8891 and the September 3 multi-week low at 0.8865 will likely be targeted.
Any bullish reaction should encounter resistance between 0.9148 and 0.9165.
Fundamentally, news of the EU / UK trade talks is likely to be the driving force behind the pair. EUR/GBP is a good barometer of how the talks are progressing and any suggestion that a deal is in the works will bring the pair down. On the other hand, if the EU / UK trade talks fail, the pair will quickly push against the resistance levels mentioned above.
