EURGBP Correcting Lower And Breaking Support Levels

I suggested in my previous EURGBP analysis that as long as the market keeps on moving lower and there is no price based evidence to the contrary there is no hurry to close the short trades. I noted that an exception to this would be price hitting the 0.7022 support level which could well bounce the price higher and therefore is a logical target level. Price is in a downtrend and we should be looking to sell rallies as long as the approach works. However, once the 0.7022 target is hit the pair is at a major consolidation level and selling rallies might get trickier. The pair indeed hit the 0.7022 target level and rallied higher quite substantially. Selling rallies has definitely been trickier since then as price pretty much rocketed through the resistance level.

The pair is trading below a weekly low from February at 0.7340 after trying to penetrate the resistance area above the level. Now that EURUSD is reacting lower from a resistance EURGBP is moving lower as well. They key support levels are 0.7220 (weekly pivot candle high) and 0.7022 a historical support. Nearest resistance levels are at 0.7340 and 0.7405. Weekly close above the pivotal weekly candle high is a longer term bullish sign as this has not happened since October last year and could signal that the pair has a bottoming process ahead.

Run up higher was followed by a relatively narrow range candle in the upper Bollinger Bands two days ago. In yesterday’s trading price closed below previous day’s low suggesting a turn around. Stochastics is overbought and signalling a momentum change, thus supporting the bearish view. Today price has moved outside the rising trendline and March 18th daily high and 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level coinciding.
