Forex: EUR/GBP retraces from highs, around 0.8743

The pair is cashing up part of the recent gains, retracing ground after today’s tops in the boundaries of 0.8770

The dovish tone from the BoE minutes plus a higher unemployment rate in the UK have intensified the bearish sentiment surrounding the sterling, dragging it to sub 1.5300 levels against the greenback. Although the euro lost the 1.3400 handle vs. the US dollar, its resilience to drop further is helping EUR/GPB to keep the area around 0.8750

At the moment, the pair is advancing 0.72% at 0.8743 facing the next hurdle at 0.8831 (high Oct.28) en route to 0.8843 (high Sep.28) and then 0.8855 (high Sep.1).
On the flip side, a breach of 0.8677 (hourly lows Feb.20) would aim for 0.8609 (MA10d) and finally 0.8587 (MA21d).

TD Securities analysts believe “the risk on/off influence on the CAD has faded quickly over the past month or so, with interest rate spreads (i.e. domestic data developments) having more influence over the CAD these days”.
