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).

    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
    • @MongiIG Hi - You recently covered Long NICKEL Trading the Trend and A. Rudolf did this morning but I see it is Closing only. Please clarify, Thanks D600
    • At the expire date IG sell/buy price is 93.8/94.95 and Bloomberg price is 92.12 Assume I bought at 100.0 If I close the trade myself I lose (100-93.8) = 6.2 If the trade expires I lose (94.95-93.8) + (100-92.12) = 1.15 + 7.8 = 9.03 Is that right?
