8/28/2009 – EUR/GBP – After traversing up a dramatically steep parallel uptrend channel for the past week and a half, price action on EUR/GBP, a 4-hour chart of which is shown, has finally shown signs of a potential bullish exhaustion by making a tentative breakdown below the channel. This occurs after price hit a 12-week high of 0.8837 on Thursday. With continued bearishness on this breakdown, a clear initial support target to the downside resides around the 0.8700 price region. To the upside, a significant level to watch is the double-tested 0.8865 level, which, if broken convincingly, could continue the recent steep bullishness and potentially target further resistance around the key 0.9080 price region.
