EURGBP Technical Analysis

However, there is another bearish trend line on the upside waiting to act as a barrier for the Euro bulls.

Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the 0.9044 high to 0.8859 low is also around the same trend line to act as a resistance.

German Factory Orders

Today in the Euro Zone, the Factory orders, which is an indicator that includes shipments, inventories, and new and unfilled orders was released by the Deutsche Bundesbank.

The market was expecting a rise of 0.3% in Sep 2016, compared with the previous month. However, the result was on the lower side, as there was a decline of 0.6%. The last reading was also revised down from 1% to 0.9%. When we look at the yearly change, there was an increase of 2.6% in Sep 2016, which was a bit higher compared with the last rise of 2%. The last reading was also revised down from 2.1% to 2%.

Overall, the Euro may move a bit higher from the current levels, but it won’t be easy for the EURGBP pair to continue gaining momentum.
