EUR/GBP: Recovering but still down for the month
The euro is about to end the week higher against the pound after falling sharply during the previous two. But on a monthly basis is still lower, after making a strong retreat from the highest level in almost two years, that reached back in April above 0.8100.
According to analysts from Lloyds Bank over the medium term, the trend from the 0.6935 lows set in July 2015 is starting to show signs of reversal. “A close below 0.7660/0.7590 supports would add further confirmation. A direct rally back through 0.7950/0.80 would re-open the recent highs while a move through 0.82 is needed to negate our underlying view for a move back towards .74/0.73.”
