EUR/GBP Price Forecast: Technical outlook

The EUR/GBP daily chart shows the cross-currency is making a strong base in the 0.8320-65 area. From a technical perspective, the EUR/GBP is downward biased but, the 0.8300 barriers kept GBP bulls uncommitted of opening fresh bets vs. the euro.

On the downside, the EUR/GBP first support level would be the YTD low at 0.8324. A breach of the latter would expose the figure at 0.8300, followed by November 2019, with monthly lows around 0.8276.

Contrarily, to the upside, the first resistance would be 0.8372. A clear break of that level would expose January 3 daily high at 0.8419, which, once broken, might open the door for further gains for the shared currency. The next supply zone would be the 50-day moving average (DMA) at 0.8455, followed by the confluence of the 100-DMA and the psychological 0,8500 level.
