FXStreet (Mumbai) - The EUR/GBP pair was offered heavily below 0.7360 (23.6% of 0.6930-0.7492) and dropped to near 50-DMA levels located at 0.7301 levels.

Fourth consecutive day of loss

The cross now trades around 0.7310 levels. The sell-off in the last four days also marked a failure to sustain above its 200-MA on the monthly chart at 0.7382 levels.
