EUR/GBP Price Analysis: Technical outlook
From a technical perspective, the EUR/GBP is still neutral to downward biased, with long-term daily Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) standing above the exchange rates; while the EUR/GBP remains unable to break the May 24 daily low support area turned resistance at around 0.8648, and seen as the latest swing low needed to be broken, to change the pair’s bias.
However, on its way toward that level, the EUR/GBP must reclaim the 0.8600 figure. A breach of the latter will expose the 0.8648 May low, which, If broken decisively, it could pave the way toward the confluence of the 100 and 200-day Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) at 0.8693/95 before challenging 0.8700.
Conversely, and the path of least resistance, the EUR/GBP first support would be the 0.8500 mark. A dip below will send the cross toward the June 23 daily low of 0.8535 before testing the June 19 swing low of 0.8518 before slumping to the 0.85 figure.
