EUR/GBP 4-hour  chart

On the 4-hour chart, the cross has been hovering near the 0.8720 area, a break of the mentioned threshold will further reinforce the bullish trend for the cross. Moving higher,   the first stoppage appears near February 15 highs at 0.8740, and then near the 0.8790 horizontally-placed resistance zone.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reads above the midline, which reaffirms that the upside momentum will continue in the near future. The prices would then be all set to touch February’s high near 0.8845.

On the flip side, if prices move to the downside, then it would locate the first stop near the 20-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA) placed at 0.8680. Afterward it could meet the 23.6% Fibo retracement near 0.8650. In the absence of an upside trigger, the price is bound to move toward a 0.8630 horizontally-placed support area.
