EUR/GBP apathetic on BoE (non) event

The European cross has managed to rebound from Wednesday’s lows in the 0.9090/85 band and regained the 0.9100 neighbourhood amidst the persistent selling bias in EUR and some tepid recovery attempt in the Sterling.

Today, the BoE failed to ignite a noticeable reaction in the British Pound after leaving unchanged its refi rate and the asset purchase facility at 0.75% and £435 billion, respectively. Surprisingly, the central bank refused to comment on Brexit.

Speaking about Brexit, latest news said the government is planning an extra £2.1 billion to prepare for a ‘no deal’ outcome, when the October deadline is just around 90 days away. The fresh funds would be oriented to increase border officers and to improve transport infrastructure at UK ports.

The cross is gaining 0.13% at 0.9113 and faces t he immediate hurdle at 0.9190 (2019 high Jul.30) followed by 0.9225 (2016 high Oct.7) and finally 0.9306 (2018 high Aug.29). On the other hand, a drop below 0.9088 (low Jul.31) would open the door to 0.9051 (high Jul.17) and then 0.9006 (21-day SMA).
