    The offered tone in the single currency has prompted EUR/GBP to retrace yesterday’s gains and return to the lower end of the range in the low-0.7700s.

    EUR/GBP attention to UK releases

    The European cross is extending its recent sideline pattern around 0.7730, navigating in a narrow range so far well supported around 0.7700 the figure while gains appear somewhat capped in the boundaries of the 0.7800 handle.

    Absent releases/events in the euro area today, market participants will look to the UK docket for direction via GBP, as Industrial/Manufacturing Production figures are due followed by the NIESR GDP Estimate.

    EUR/GBP key levels

    The European cross is now down 0.11% at 0.7736 and a breakdown of 0.7693 (38.2% Fibo of 0.7310-0.7931) would open the door to 0.7688 (low Mar.2) and finally 0.7633 (55-day sma). On the other hand, the next hurdle lines up at 0.7785 (20-day sma) ahead of 0.7931 (high Feb.25) and then 0.7977 (high Dec.1 2014).
