The price actions of the EUR/GBP cross pair have started to trace out a medium-term bullish basing configuration since 23 August 2023 as we await the latest Bank of England (BoE) monetary policy decision later today.

There are three key positive technical developments that have taken form. Firstly, the bullish basing formation has taken shape after a recent retest (23 August 2023) on the major ascending trendline from the 7 March 2022 low of 0.8203.
Secondly, recent price actions have surpassed the key 200-day moving average with a retest and rebound from it during yesterday’s US session (1 November) ex-post FOMC.
Thirdly, the 20 and 50-day moving averages have started to slope upwards with price actions above the 50-day moving average that indicate a potential medium-term uptrend phase is in motion.
Oscillation within a minor ascending channel

In the short-term as seen in the 1-hour chart, the EUR/GBP has evolved into an impulsive up move sequence within a minor ascending channel in place since the 6 September 2023 low.
Watch the 0.8680 key short-term pivotal support (lower boundary of the ascending channel & 20-day moving average) for a potential push-up to retest the 31 October minor swing high area of 0.8750 before the intermediate resistance at 0.8820 (upper boundary of the ascending channel, 2/3May 2023 swing high & Fibonacci extension).
However, a break below 0.8680 negates the bullish tone for a pull-back toward the next intermediate support at 0.8640 (50-day moving average).
