EUR/GBP daily chart

On the daily chart, the EUR/GBP cross has been looking for a clear direction following the formation of the Doji candlestick for the third day in a row. The cross confides in a broader trading range capping the high near 0.8720 and lows in the vicinity of 0.8580, which constitute the formation of rectangle formation.

On moving higher, if price makes a sustained move above the session high at 0.8592, then it could trace back to the 50-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA) placed at 0.8615 followed by the April 20 high at 0.8643.
 
The next area of resistance would be the April 22 high at 0.8702.

The receding Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator suggests any downtick could bring sellers back in action. The first support level could be located at the bottom of the rectangle formation at 0.8550.

Market participants would next be following the 0.8530 and 0.8500 horizontal support levels.
