In the short term, the EUR/GBP is trading back near intraday resistance after declining as much as 150 pips in yesterday’s trading. Resistance is displayed below at today’s R3 Camarilla pivot, which is found at a price of .8549. The EUR/GBP is trading above this point now, but if the pair returns back inside of the displayed pivot range it may suggest that trading may push price back to support. Values of support include pivot support at .8465 and the final support pivot (S4) at .8423.

If prices decline below .8423, this would denote a resumption of the EUR/GBP’s prevailing downtrend. Traders may extrapolate targets for a bearish breakout by using a 1X extension of today’s 74 pip range. This places initial targets near .8349. It should be noted that in the event of a bullish reversal, traders may look for the EUR/GBP to approach the R4 point of resistance at .8590. In this alternative scenario, traders may select to set intial bullish breakout targets near .8664.
