EURGBP Challenging 23.6% Fibonacci Retracement

EURGBP, Weekly

EURGBP has been moving higher since it hit my target level at 0.7022 in March. EURGBP had been moving too low for too long and had reached levels that acted as resistance in several occasions from 1998 to 2006. Now March monthly candle has created a doji while the April candle will be another doji if no spectacular price moves happen over today’s trading. This suggests that long term supply and demand are in relative balance at current levels.

Providing this week’s candle closes in proximity of current price levels or higher we very likely have a higher weekly low and a new pivotal candle in weekly time frame. This low coincides with the upper end of downward regression channel. Stochastics is neutral reflecting the price action being close to half way of the recent price range. EURGBP is currently trying to challenge the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level. A close above last week’s high implies probabilities for the pair moving to next weekly highs have increased.

EURGBP, Daily

The pair has moved above its 50 day SMA that coincides with a previous resistance level at 0.7236 while another technical factor coinciding with this level is the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. These levels are fairly close to the midrange and therefore do not bear that strong predictive value but it would still a positive if we saw this market closing above the 0.7236 level. Nearest significant support and resistance levels in the daily chart: 0.7132 and 0.7326.

Price has broken out of the descending regression channel and has since then moved above resistance levels that have now turned into supports.  Stochastics is getting overbought so it shouldn’t be too long from now that we see retracements to support levels. Nearest support at 0.7213 should be an interesting level to look at for long signals in such a case while 0.7285 is the nearest more significant intraday resistance level.

Conclusion

There is an attempt to create a market bottom but this pair however probably needs more consolidation before it’s completed. While EURUSD has moved beyond the recent highs that resisted the price advances EURGBP is still below the same highs and therefore inside the range. These pairs have recently had fairly strong correlation, and should the EURUSD correct lower from a resistance it is likely to have a negative impact on EURGBP. If EURUSD corrects lower and tests support levels successfully it is more likely that EURGBP will bottom out. A close above last week’s high implies probabilities for the pair moving to next weekly highs have increased. In such case the 0.7376 to 0.7422 range would be a reasonable target for short term trades. Short term momentum is currently to the upside but price is nearing the 0.7286 resistance. The Greek uncertainty coupled with elections in the UK could bring more volatility over the coming days and weeks. As usual, it makes sense to look for sell signals at resistance levels and buy signals at supports.
