    Between 0.7540 and a dynamic resistance

    Since the beginning of December EUR/GBP has been rising constantly. The rally brought the price from 0.7000 to 0.7755 (Jan 20 high). After toping it failed to hold above 0.7700 and make a bearish correction.

    The area around 0.7540 become a key support of the correction. A break lower could open the doors for an extension of the movement. While on the opposite direction the key resistance is a downtrend line coming from January highs that currently is located around 0.7610/20; a break higher could strengthen the euro and change the short-term tone of the pair.
