EUR/GBP Stays in a Downtrend, But Slows Down | Technical Analysis

EUR/GBP traded lower on Friday, after it hit resistance at 0.8500. However, today, it found support at 0.8472, and then, it rebounded somewhat. Overall, the pair continues to trade below the downside resistance line taken from the high of September 29th, but since Thursday, it’s been struggling to go for a lower low. Thus, we will adopt a cautiously bearish stance for now.

In order to start examining the resumption of the prevailing downtrend, we would like to see a break below 0.8472. This will confirm a forthcoming lower low on the 4-hour chart and could initially target the 0.8450 hurdle, marked by the lows of August 10th and 11th. If the bears are not willing to stop there, then we could see them pushing the battle all the way down to the inside swing high of February 20th, 2020, at around 0.8420.

Shifting attention to our short-term oscillators, we see that the RSI rebounded from near 30, while the MACD, although negative, lies above its trigger line and points up. Both indicators detect slowing downside speed, suggesting that today’s rebound may continue for a while more. However, as long as EUR/GBP is trading below the aforementioned downside line, we cannot call for a bullish reversal.

In order to do so, we would like to see a break above that line, and then a move above the 0.8526 barrier, marked by the high of October 6th and the inside swing low of September 28th. This could initially open the path towards the high of October 5th, at 0.8545, the break of which could see scope for larger bullish extensions, perhaps towards the high of the day before, at 0.8573.
