    Source: FxWire Pro - Technicals / 22 Jan 2018 02:03:58   Eastern Standard Time

    • EUR/GBP is trading in a narrow range, intraday bias is neutral.
       
    • The pair is extending minor upside for the 2nd consecutive day, but finds stiff resistance at 200-DMA at 0.8836.
       
    • Price action is struggling to extend gains above 200-DMA and we see any upside only on decisive close above.
       
    • Break below 0.88 handle will see test of major trendline support at 0.8755. Violation there will see further weakness.
       
    • Price action is extending in a 'Symmetric Triangle' pattern and breakout above would provide clear direction.

    Support levels - 0.88, 0.8755 (trendline), 0.8682 (61.8% Fib retrace of 0.8297 to 0.9306 rally)

    Resistance levels - 0.8827 (5-DMA), 0.8836 (200-DMA), 0.8879 (100-DMA)

    Recommendation: We prefer to wait for clear directional bias.
