- EUR/GBP is better bid above 0.87 at press time.
- Last week’s inverted bull hammer has made Friday’s close pivotal.
- A weekly close under 0.8690 may embolden bears.
EUR/GBP is currently trading at 0.8713, representing a 0.20% gain on the day.
The pair created an inverted bullish hammer last week, aborting the sell-off from highs bove 0.94 observed in March.
If the pair ends Friday below the hammer’s low of 0.8690, it would imply a continuation of the sell-off from 0.94 and shift risk in favor of a drop to 0.8472 (March 11 low).
Alternatively, a close above hammer’s high of 0.8863 would confirm a bullish reversal on the weekly chart. A move above 0.8863 would also confirm a double bottom breakout on the daily chart (assuming the pair does not break below 0.8650 and moves higher from the current price).
