Posted on January 14, 2020 at 8:16 am GMT

EURGBP is entering bullish territory as the price is deviating above its shorter-term moving averages (SMAs) at the same time the MACD is turning positive after 5 months. The RSI and the red Tenkan-sen line are resuming their positive momentum, backing this view as well.

Technical Analysis – EURGBP tests base of long-term range; bias still bearish

Posted on December 16, 2019 at 7:51 am GMT

EURGBP stretched its sharp downfall from Friday to retest the base of its three-year old range, as it traded near the 0.8300 round level.
