Currently, the EUR/GBP pair trades 0.15% higher at 0.7394, and looks to retest 0.74 handle. The EUR/GBP cross found fresh buying interest as the shared currency edged higher after the final services PMI reports from the Euro are economies.

Germany’s final services PMI, eased to 54.1 from 54.9 in August. The preliminary print came in at 54.3. While the 19-nation bloc’s services PMI booked 53.7 points in Sept, down from 54.4 a month ago. The preliminary survey stood at a 54.0 result.
