EURGBP recently made a
break below the head and shoulders neckline support then dipped to a low of
.7650. Price is showing signs of a pullback from the breakout move, possibly
retesting the broken neckline around .7750-.7800.
Applying the Fib tool on
the latest swing high and low shows that the 38.2% level coincides with the
broken support, which might now keep gains in check. A higher correction could
last until the 61.8% Fib closer to the .7800 major psychological mark and the
descending trend line connecting the latest highs on the 4-hour time frame.
This is also near the 100
SMA dynamic inflection point. This short-term moving average is below the
longer-term 200 SMA, indicating that the path of least resistance is to the

Event risks for this setup
include any updates on the Brexit polls, as a widening margin in favor of those
voting to stay in the EU could mean more gains for the pound. The BOE Inflation
Report is lined up tomorrow and reassuring remarks from policymakers could keep
the pound supported as well.
As for the euro, a number
of medium-tier reports are lined up from its top economies, providing hints of
the entire region’s economic performance. Flash manufacturing and services PMIs
are due from France and Germany today.
Later on in the week, the
UK will print its revised Q1 GDP reading while the euro zone will have its ZEW
economic sentiment index and German Ifo business climate reading released.
