EUR/GBP testing bottom of daily range

By FXstreet.com | June 17, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (London) - Despite an early reaction to UK CPI data which saw spot climb to post a high at 0.8008, EUR/GBP has been testing the bottom of its daily range and is presently trading at lows around 0.7984 support by the 1H 50 SMA.

EUR/GBP Bounce led by UK CPI

This morning saw UK Core CPI miss expectations at 1.6%/1.7% YoY, and 1.5%/1.7% CPI YoY. Elsewhere the Retail Price Index also missed expectations and declined from previous in both YoY and MoM. The initial reaction was to send spot to post a daily high at 0.8008, but ultimately it was unable to keep its head above the round number and retraced.

EUR/GBP Technicals

Following a respective high and low at 0.8011 and 0.7982 , EUR/GBP is currently trading at 0.7985, down -0.08% on the day. Looking to a 4H chart we can see that a larger downtrend has been in play since the start of the month and despite the recent bounce, a retest of the 0.7960 June 16 Low could be at play. On a 4H chart we can see that price action is presently offered support by the 20 WMA.

Meanwhile daily RSI sits at 23.38, in neutral territory and 2-Standard Deviation Volatility Bandwidth is at 187 pips and expanding on a daily chart.
