EUR/GBP Price Analysis: En route 0.8860 hurdle during four-day uptrend.

EUR/GBP grinds near weekly high, up for the fourth consecutive day.Clear rebound from 50% Fibonacci retracement, upside break of 100-SMA favor bulls.

One-week-old resistance line restricts immediate upside ahead of monthly top.

EUR/GBP picks up bids to 0.8845 as bulls poke intraday high, as well as the weekly top, heading into Wednesday’s European session. In doing so, the cross-currency pair rises for the fourth consecutive day after reversing from the 50% Fibonacci retracement of its run-up from early December to January 13.

In addition to a successful rebound from the key Fibonacci retracement level of 0.8722, the EUR/GBP pair’s ability to cross the 100-SMA hurdle, as well as the bullish MACD signals, favor the bulls.It should be noted, however, that a downward-sloping resistance line from January 13, close to 0.8860 at the latest, guards the quote’s immediate upside.

That said, the quote’s run-up beyond 0.8860 could enable the EUR/GBP bulls to refresh the monthly high, currently around 0.8900. In that case, the 61.8% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) of its moves between December 01, 2022, and January 13, 2023, close to 0.8955, will gain the market’s attention.Alternatively, pullback moves may initially aim for the 100-SMA level surrounding 0.8815 ahead of targeting the 0.8800 round figure.

Following that, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.8722 should lure the EUR/GBP bears.In a case where the quote remains bearish past 0.8722, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level near 0.8680, also known as the “golden ratio”, will be crucial to watch.
