EUR/GBP Technical Analysis

The Euro failed to settle above the 0.8600 resistance against the British Pound. As a result, EUR/GBP saw a bearish reaction below the 0.8560 support level.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair traded below a major bullish trend line with support at 0.8575. There was also a close below the 0.8560 level and the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours).

The pair spiked below the 0.8520 level and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours). It traded as low as 0.8510 before it started an upside correction. There was a break above the 0.8535 level. The pair even climbed above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.8613 swing high to 0.8510 low.

However, the bears protected the last key support (now resistance) at 0.8560. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.8613 swing high to 0.8510 low is also acting as a resistance.

To start a fresh increase, the pair must clear 0.8560 and 0.8570. On the downside, there is a major support forming near the 0.8510 zone. The next major support is near 0.8500. Any more losses might push the pair towards the 0.8460 support zone in the near term.
