FXStreet (Mumbai) - The cross in the EUR/GBP regained lost momentum and marched higher following the release of the German services and manufacturing PMI reports. EUR/GBP rises from 0.7270 Currently, the EUR/GBP pair trades 0.28% higher at 0.7288, heading towards 0.73 barrier. The cross trades firmer largely on renewed sterling weakness ahead of the UK jobs report while the EUR/USD drifts lower, unimpressed by the upbeat German PMI reading. The preliminary PMI reading for Germany's factory industry came in at 53.0, up from November's final reading of 52.9. Markets had predicted a rise to 52.8 points. Meanwhile, markets now await the key UK’s jobs report for further momentum on the cross while the Fed decision is expected to hog the limelight in the day ahead. EUR/GBP Technical Levels To the upside, the next resistance is located at 0.7300 (round number), above which it could extend gains to 0.7311 (daily R1). To the downside immediate support might be located at 0.7240 (100--DMA) below that at 0.7195 (200-DMA). For more information, read our latest forex news.
