EURGBP Daily Technical Analysis   

EURGBP is 0.07% lower at 0.9029, with GBP attempting for a credible break below the 0.90 mark. Bulls look strong at the 50-day moving average, and every time it breaks below the bids are outpacing sellers. 

Bears have to break the support at 0.9015, which guards for today the 0.90 round figure. Next support is at 0.8983 the low from yesterday’s trading session. A break below might challenge the 100-day moving average at 0.8928. 

On the flip side, today’s high at 0.9041 would be the first hurdle. Next resistance stands at 0.9059 the top from August 5. The next supply zone awaits at 0.9080 the high from JULY 30.
