EUR/GBP technical outlook 

The pair is testing the short-term support area at 0.8410, a break lower would expose 0.8400. Below, the pair could attempt to close the mentioned gap with a decline to 0.8370. The key medium-term support could be seen around the 0.8300 handle. 

On the opposite direction, resistance might be located at 0.8460 (daily high / Apr 17 low), 0.8510 (Apr 6 low / Apr 24 high) and 0.8530 (weekly high).
