EUR/GBP ahead of the BoE meeting
2019-11-11 • Updated
SELL 0.9085; TP 0.9050; SL 0.9100
BUY 0.9130; TP 0.9175; SL 0.9115
EUR/GBP has so far been one of the most volatile currency pairs. It rose to 2-year highs and the ascent was fast. Daily oscillators show bearish divergence and indeed a correction took place yesterday: a bearish “engulfing” candlestick appeared on D1.
The upcoming meeting and press conference of the Bank of England (BoE) promise further moves of the exchange rate. There’s scope for more correction, so a decline below the Wednesday’s low at 0.9089 will open the way down at least to 0.9050 (July 17 high). Notice that the ultimate support is at 0.8950 (bottom of the bullish channel).
At the same time, the dovish Bank of England may weaken the GBP once again bring the pair back to the channel’s top. A rise above 0.9130 will make the pair rise to 0.9180.
The trend in the scenario above is clearly bearish. We have also had a recent break of structure at the marked horizontal arrows, which means we can expect price to react from the supply zone that broke the structure.
