EURGBP rebounds today from levels that we haven’t seen the last six as the short term momentum is bearish on stronger GBP as the UK is heading to general elections.
Buyers will meet the first resistance at 0.8593 today’s top while more offers expected at 0.8656 the high from November 11th which protect the 50-day moving average at 0.87123. Investors looking to buy the pair might enter a long position if the EURGBP breaks convincingly above the 50-day moving average.
On the other hand, first support stands at 0.8560 the daily low and then at 0.8520 the lows from November 18th. The next support level stands at 0.8489 the low from May 5th. Investors holding short positions might sit comfortably as long as the pair trades below the 0.8600 mark.More content
