EUR/GBP daily chart
On the daily chart, the EUR/GBP cross has been moving in a broader trading channel of 0.8520 and 0.8700 since April with one breakout in between.
A sustained move below the intraday low would meet with the first support at the 0.8500 horizontal support level.
In doing so, next to EUR/GBP could test the levels last seen in February.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator trades just below the midline, with a bearish crossover. Any downtick in the MACD would prompt bears to retest the low of 0.8472 made on April 5 followed by the February 27 low at 0.8433.
Alternatively, if price moves higher, it will shrug off the current downside momentum. In that case, the first upside target emerges at the 0.8525 horizontal resistance level.
The next upside target appears at the 0.8540 horizontal resistance level followed by the high of July 26 at 0.8573.
