Technical Analysis – EUR/GBP opens with a gap down

EUR/GBP opens with a gap down; approaches oversold area.

EUR/GBP opened with a gap down on Monday near one-month lows and is currently trying to restore its losses. Negative risks, however, remain in the background as the MACD increases momentum to the downside and below its red signal line. The RSI is also in the bearish territory but is close to its 30 oversold level, hinting that an upside correction is possible. The latter is also supported by the Stochastics which are heading for a bullish cross below 20.

Should the market stretch north, immediate resistance is expected to come from the 61.8% Fibonacci of the up-leg from 0.8620 to 0.9097, near 0.8800. A break higher would shift focus to the 50% Fibonacci of 0.8858, which tried to halt both downside and upside movements several times in the past. Above that, investors would be interested to see whether bullish dynamics can overcome the previous peak of 0.8938 which is located slightly above the 38.2% Fibonacci of 0.8914.

On the other hand, a decline in the price may retest 0.8722, the low on October 10 and the 78.6% Fibonacci before meeting support between 0.8700 and 0.8678. Further down, the next stop could be at the 0.8620 level, where any violation would resume the down-leg off 0.9097.

Turning to the medium-term picture, the market continues to trade in a downtrend since August 28. But hopes for a bull market are weakening as the 50-day moving average is moving downwards to drop below the 200-day MA, while the 20-day MA has already crossed below it.
