EUR better in short-term, consolidation continues The euro still remains in negative territory for the day but has moved away from the lows and it improved the intra-day technical outlook. On a wider perspective EUR/GBP continues to consolidate around 0.7700/30 after the correction from levels near 0.80 found support at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement (of the 0.70 - 0.79 rally) around 0.7700. A consolidation below 0.7700 could open the doors for an extensions of the correction while a daily close significantly above 0.7780 (20-DMA) could add strength to the euro.
