GBP EUR: Will this up trend continue?


Recommended Posts

Since the 8th of april the pound has been rising well, a decent trend line, however just hoped around the 61.8% fib line and half way placement within the tram line. Momentum however if you look on the half hourly does appear to suggest possible weakness, of course a close beyond the trend line could suggest a turn lower. However, the bank of england tomorow could state something in regards to Brexit of which could either add fire to this momentum or add water. Always great to hear what traders may think of this.

Hi Donald,


I was given a piece of input when I joined my first forum and that is that the more commonly traded cross is, for whatever reason, EURGBP rather than the reverse.  See posts on EURGBP for views on this cross, take them as reversed if you prefer to trade GBPEUR.  I have never been sure why they offer both on this, bit of a mystery to me.

Hy Mercury, cheers for that info, i too could never understand why both pairs in reverse were on offer to trade. Just looked at your charts and see that your analysis was spot on the ball with the shorts. Always best to wait for price confirmation with these things, therefore most likely let this play out first.

The currency does appear to be in an interesting move at present, never mind the brexit, with technical analysis, always best to stick to market fundamentals and critical numbers, rather than the news. Currently in a good uptrend, and has found a good support within the trend line, as well as having a nice bullish candle on the 2H chart. If we have a break out on the daily chart we could see this go higher, however failing that then a resumption of the downtrend would be first noted on the 2 hourly chart.

After a decent run down, which I came out of a touch too early, this pair has now turned and broken through my upper tramline.  I expect a run up to the Fib 50% resistance area, although we may get a pull back and kiss or near kiss on the tram first.  Look for an A-B-C motion up before a resumption of the Bear.  This is nicely fitting my positions on GBPUSD (down) and EURUSD (up then down).

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
