EUR/GBP slowly drifting at 0.7950

FXStreet (Moscow) - EUR/GBP opened the day at 0.7951, and slowly drifted higher posting 0.7967 before a retreat to 0.7950 area.

No limits for a fall

The cross came back to the middle of 3-month range, and now everything will depend on the strength of the pound recovery. It looks like the market already got rid of its Scotland obsession, and if it really so, there is good potential to see further drift lower of the cross. The economic and monetary policy gap between the euro zone and the UK is getting wider, and as soon as the market completely abandons the referendum saga, there won’t be any barriers to go lower.
