EUR/GBP climbs to a high of 0.9150 as the pound erases earlier gains

EUR/GBP H1 19-08

Of note, price is appearing to find a base just above the 0.9100 handle after the move to the downside last week. In turn, price is climbing back up now and is threatening to challenge a move back above near-term resistance close to 0.9150.

The euro is staying rather upbeat to start the new week amid further talks of potential German fiscal stimulus seen earlier this morning. That has also helped to give European banking stocks a good nudge higher on the day.

Meanwhile, the pound is being nudged lower as sellers are back in the fray again to start the week and the currency is now at session lows for the day across major pairs. Cable has moved back down to 1.2130 as I type this out.

The risk for EUR/GBP sellers now is if price starts to move back towards a test of the key hourly moving averages. The 100-hour MA (red line) @ 0.9205 will be the first key point to look out for in that regard.

However, looking ahead this week, the euro still has to navigate through PMI data on Thursday and that will be a key risk factor for buyers in the sessions ahead.
