EUR/GBP Price Analysis: Technical outlook

Daily chart

EUR/GBP price action depicts the pair as upward biased. However, buyers unable to break above the 0.8650 kept the cross-currency range-bound in the 0.8550-0.8650 area, meaning consolidation lies ahead. Further confirmation of that is the Relative Strength Index (RSI) At 55.36, in positive territory but with an almost horizontal slope.

Therefore, the EUR/GBP top of the range is 0.8650. A breach of the latter would expose the 0.8700 figure. Once cleared, the next ceiling level would be the YTD high at 0.8720, followed by 0.8800.

On the flip side, the EUR/GBP first support is the 20-EMA at 0.5857. Break below would expose June’s 16 low at 0.8511, followed by the 50-EMA at 0.8493.
