EUR/GBP: a short-term idea
Information is not investment advice
EUR/GBP formed a candlestick with a long lower wick on the MN chart – a sign of reversal to the upside. On the W1, two attempts to test lower levels ended by the ultimate failure of sellers. The pair went above the December-January resistance line in the 0.8517 area. The price action resembles the harmonic “butterfly” pattern. It means that the price will likely rise to the 0.8570/90 area before it meets resistance and starts declining. We favor buying as long as EUR/GBP is above 0.8525 with target at 0.8565/70. When the pair gets up to 0.8570/90, we’ll look for selling opportunities.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
