FXStreet (Moscow) - EUR/GBP broke below the psychologically important level of 0.8000 and entered a consolidation phase, though the downside may be extended during European hours
EUR/GBP is sinking
Mark Carney dropped EUR/GBP below the pivotal level of 0.8000, and the cross is set to continue the downside. It looks like the investors have already priced in a great deal in terms of a full-blown QE programme by the ECB, but the rate differential theme has come to the fore once again. The initial target to the downside may be seen at 0.7959 (the low of August 27, 2012), while the upside correction may be limited by 0.8000.
