The next key support is near the 1.2220 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 1.2192 low to 1.2293 high is also near the 1.3240 level.

On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the 1.2280 level, above which there are chances of more gains in GBP/USD above the 1.2300 resistance area.

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis Euro British Pound Chart

Recently, the pair started an upside correction above the 0.9050 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the 0.9156 high to 0.9028 low. However, the pair is facing hurdles near the 0.9100 level.

It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the decline from the 0.9156 high to 0.9028 low is acting as a strong resistance. Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.9100 on the hourly chart.

If there is an upside break and close above 0.9100, EUR/GBP could start a strong upward move towards the 0.9200 resistance. An intermediate resistance is near the 0.9150 level.

On the other hand, if there is no break above the 0.9100 resistance, the pair could resume its decline. An immediate support is near the 0.9060 and 0.9050 levels. If there are more losses, the pair could even decline below the 0.9028 swing low in the near term.
