    • EUR/GBP has been rejected at major trendline resistance at 0.8970, slips lower from session highs at 0.8967 to close at 0.8926 on Wednesday's trade.
    • Price action range bound on the day. The pair made a day's high of 0.8928 and a low of 0.8917.
    • Markets await European Central Bank meeting. Focus will be on staff forecasts and Draghi’s press conference.
    • On the other side, the British Pound remains vulnerable ahead of the EU summit on March 22 where an EU-UK trade deal should be concluded. 
    • Technical studies are biased higher and we see scope for further upside on break above trendline.
    • RSI is above 50 levels and Stochs show bullish momentum. We see +ve DMI dominance and MACD also supports upside.
    • Break above 0.8970 (trendline) raises scope for test of 61.8% Fib at 0.9069.
    • On the flipside, 5-DMA at 0.8921 is immediate support. Break below could test 200-DMA at 0.8888. Violation at 200-DMA invalidates bullish bias.

    Support levels - 0.8921 (5-DMA), 0.8888 (200-DMA), 0.8867 (20-DMA)

    Resistance levels - 0.8970 (trendline), 0.90, 0.9014 (Nov 15 high), 0.9070 (61.8% Fib retrace of 0.9306 to 0.8686 fall)

    Recommendation: Good to go long on breakout at trendline resistance at 0.8970, SL: 0.89, TP: 0.90/ 0.9070/ 0.91.
