EUR/GBP’s decline from 0.9305 short term top extended lower last week. Initial bias stays on the downside this week for 55 day EMA (now at 0.9018). Sustained trading below there will likely start the third leg of the consolidation from 0.9304 and target 38.2% retracement of 0.8312 to 0.9305 at 0.8926 first. On the upside, above 0.9202 minor resistance will turn bias back to the upside for 0.9305 resistance instead.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 0.9304 are viewed as a medium term corrective pattern. It’s uncertain whether it is finished yet. But in case of another fall, we’d expect strong support from 0.8116 cluster support (50% retracement of 0.6935 to 0.9304 at 0.8120) to contain downside and bring rebound. Whole up trend from 0.6935 is expected to resume after consolidation from 0.9304 completes. Firm break of 0.9799 high will target 61.8% projection of 0.5680 to 0.9799 from 0.6935 at 1.1054.
In the long term picture, firstly, price action from 0.9799 (2008 high) is seen as a long term corrective pattern and should have completed at 0.6935 (2015 low). Secondly, rise from 0.6935 is likely resuming up trend from 0.5680 (2000 low). Thirdly, this is supported by the impulsive structure of the rise from 0.6935 to 0.9304. Hence, after the correction from 0.9304 completes, we’d expect another medium term up trend through 0.9799 to 61.8% projection of 0.5680 to 0.9799 from 0.6935 at 1.1054.
