EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: Descending triangle breakout likely

The EUR/GBP pair's persistent defense of key rising trendline could embolden the bulls to take out the resistance or the upper edge of the descending triangle pattern, seen in the chart below.

4-hour chart

  • As seen above, the trendline connecting the Nov. 13 low and Dec. 7 low is begin defended for the third day. That validates the bullish view put forward by the rising 50, 100, and 200-candle moving averages (MAs).
  • EUR/GBP, therefore, could witness a descending triangle breakout - a bullish continuation pattern - which, if confirmed, would signal a revival of the rally from the Nov. 13 low of 0.8656 and allow a re-test of the recent 0.9087.
  • A triangle breakout will likely send the bulls packing.
