EUR/GBP supported around 0.7400

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - EUR/GBP has managed to bounce off the 0.7400 neighbourhood on Wednesday and is now trading in a tight range around 0.7420/25.

EUR/GBP capped by 0.7500

The better tone from the single currency has initially helped to push EUR/GBP to the boundaries of 0.7500 the figure earlier this week, although the late recovery in GBP has dragged the European cross back to the low-0.7400s.

The data space will be empty in both the UK and Euroland, leaving the cross to the mercy of the risk appetite trends during the first half of the day, while inflation figures and key Fedspeak will be the main highlights in the NA session.

EUR/GBP relevant levels

As of writing the cross is up 0.09% at 0.7421 and a breakout of 0.7500 (psychological handle) would expose 0.7592 (monthly high Feb.3) and finally 0.7600 (psychological mark). On the other hand, the immediate support lines up at 0.7372 (up trend from September low) followed by 0.7311 (55-d sma) and then 0.7196 (monthly low Sep.22).
