    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The bid tone on the EUR failed to improve despite the upbeat German Zew survey, leaving the EUR/GBP cross unaffected around 0.7270 levels.

    Stock rally weighs over EUR

    The shared currency is slowly trimming gains on account of the sharp rise in the major European equity markets. The German Zew survey – Economic sentiment and Current situation – index beat estimates. However, the Eurozone economic sentiment misses estimates and could have negated the impact of the positive german survey.

    Meanwhile, the Sterling traders also turned a blind eye towards the upbeat UK CPI. Consequently, a very little action was witnessed following the data releases.

    EUR/GBP Technical Levels

    The cross turned lower from the high of 0.7302 tracking the strength in the European stocks. The immediate support is seen at 0.7240 (50% of 0.7240-0.6981), under which the losses could be extended to 0.7212 (50% of 0.6931-0.7493). On the other hand, a break above 0.73 handle would open doors for a rally to 0.7333 (Oct 7 low).
