EUR/GBP Weekly chart 1/25/2013
Accelerated rally: EUR/GBP has been a monster and deserves a look in the larger time-frame. Looking at the weekly chart, you can see a rally that started in July from the 0.7756 low that has accelerated once it broke above a falling trendline, and the completion of an inverted head and shoulders. The past 3 weeks, have seen this pair rally from 0.8080 to now above the 2012 high after breaking above 0.8505.
200-week SMA: As this trading week ends, the 200-week SMA is probably going to hold. The market will start the next week looking at EUR/GBP with bullish momentum in the weekly chart as the RSI kisses 70.
Resistance? We may have already entered a bull trend that could last the year, though this parabolic state of rally should lose steam soon. This is a market where all signs are bullish, but it has reached levels that might provide supply between the 200-week SMA and the 61.8% retracement at 0.8576. Will these factors be enough for the market to enter into a period of consolidation, or correction?
