    FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/GBP is above the 0.76 handle and the 200 sma on the hourly sticks at 0.7594.

    The euro has rallied on a soft dollar, as has the pound, but the euro has the upper hand in a short squeeze that triggered multiple stops on the way up. "We think EURUSD is likely to trade on a firmer footing as the 1.13 area beckons," suggested analysts at TD Securities.

    "Super Thursday;' at the BOE tomorrow and newspapers dominated by the Brexit story will attract more attention however, and the FT's headline (“Cameron faces tough fight to sell EU plan”) doesn't suggest we'll get much of a bid to sterling," suggested Kit Juckes, economist at Societe Generale.
