Previous: BoE's Inaction Gives GBP/USD a Bump and; Smacks the EUR/GBP off a Rally (6/7)

EUR/USD Chart 1H 6/11/2012 6:29AM EDT


The EUR/GBP started the week popping above the June high at 0.8140. However, the 6/11 Asian-European session has reversed this initial pop falling from about 0.8153 and fell back to near 0.8080.

If price action can stay above the 0.8070-0.8080 area, we still have a bullish, though choppy outlook for the week. The price would still be above the previous swing lows, and the 200-hour simple moving average (SMA). Also, the 1H RSI reading staying above 40 would help retain the bullish momentum.

The upside for a continuing correction rally scenario is limited to 0.82-0.8220 pivot area and likely a declining trendline.

A break below 0.8070, with the RSI pushing below 40 and even 30 however, should open up the 0.8050 consolidation low. Then, a break below 0.80 would suggest a completion of a short to medium term consolidation and open up 0.79 and even 0.77 (2008 consolidation low).
