EURGBP Soars!, More Gains Ahead?

The EURGBP cross soared on Friday session, surpassing the psychological 0.92 barrier, advancing until the target area forecasted in our previous short-term analysis (here.)


Technical Overview

Our previous analysis discussed the completion of the complex corrective formation identified as a double-three pattern of Minute degree labeled in black, which began on last September 11th at 0.92916 and finished on November 11th at 0.88610. Likewise, after the double-three completion, the cross completed the wave B of Minor degree identified in green.

Once the EURGBP found the bottom at 0.88610, the cross began a rally corresponding to wave C. We have seen in our previous analysis the price completed wave ((ii)) at 0.88667 on November 23rd. After this completion, both the breakout of the descending trendline of the second wave in black and the strong bullish long-body candlestick formation developed in the November 27th session confirmed the start of the third wave in black.

Technical Outlook

During the last trading session of the week, the short-term Elliott wave view for the EURGBP cross exposed in the following 8-hour chart reveals the acceleration in its advance, which surpassed the supply zone between 0.92008 and 0.92181, finding resistance at 0.92298.

The impulsive upward movement observed during Friday’s session allows us to distinguish the completion of the wave ((iii)) at 0.92298 and the beginning of the fourth wave of the same degree.

In this context, the current corrective formation identified as wave ((iv)) in black could decline until the previous supply zone between 0.90686 and 0.90446, where the cross could find fresh buyers. Once the fourth wave completes, the cross should advance in a new rally corresponding to wave ((v)), which would be subdivided into a five-wave sequence. The potential target for the end of wave C is within the next supply zone between 0.92568 and 0.92916.

In summary, the EURGBP cross appears moving in an incomplete wave C of Minor degree, which, in its lesser degree count, shows the beginning of the fourth wave in black. This corrective formation could decline until the previous supply zone is located between 0.90446 and 0.90686. The cross, then, could find fresh buyers expecting the continuation of the trend that would push up the price toward the supply zone between 0.92568 and 0.92916.

Lastly, the invalidation level for this bullish scenario can be found at 0.90031.
