Key quotes

“EUR/GBP’s correction lower went a little further than we had hoped but remains within the realms of a correction only. We view this as the market pausing ahead of further gains to the 0.9308 2017 high and 0.9323, the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement. This is formidable resistance and it is expected to hold the initial test.” 

“We suspect that the market is consolidating ahead of another leg higher. Near-term dips will find initial support at 0.9072, the mid-August high and are likely to remain contained by the 55-day ma at 0.9038.”
