EUR/GBP: climbing higher
Information is not investment advice
The pair approaches the significant resistance at 61.8% Fibo level. Look for the breakout!
According to Rabobank, EUR/GBP may surge to 0.92. This movement can be caused by no-Brexit agreement. In addition, the combination of Brexit uncertainties and the COVID-19 economic damage may force the Bank of England to take extra measures to support the economy such as negative interest rates. In comparison with other countries, which have already imposed negative rates, the UK has an account deficit. This situation put the British pound under threat. Analysts from Commerzbank assured that if EUR/GBP breaks through the resistance at 0.9056, the pair may point to the 0.9129 resistance.
- The British GDP came out much worse than analysts expected. It turned out 1.8%, while the forecast was 5.5%. Thus, the British pound got an additional headwind amid the current risk-off sentiment.
- The EU got a mixed data today: the poor industrial production and the positive ZEW economic sentiment. Investors shrugged off the negative data. As a result, the Euro bulls became stronger today.
EUR/GBP has sharply rose since yesterday. It approaches the key resistance at 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at 0.9084. If it breaks it through, the pair may surge to the 78.6% Fibo level at 0.9125. Support levels are at 0.9056 and 0.9029.

On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
