EURGBP Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: EURGBP crossed below its 200 day moving average yesterday. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 200 day average, which is 51.6 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days EURGBP’s price has gone down 9 them.
