Intraday Forex Analysis – 1 Hour Charts – July 06, 2016


AUDUSD – 1 Hour Chart

AUDUSD - 06.07.2016

The AUDUSD was bearish in yesterday’s trading sessions. The bullish moving averages are tightening, suggesting that price could continue it’s bearish run. If price moves higher before moving lower, there could be selling opportunities around the moving averages and around the bearish trend line (currently sitting at 0.7520).

Due to the UK leaving the EU, the USD has strengthened. As economic uncertainty continues, traders and investors could continue to buy safe heaven financial assets like the Japanese Yen, the US Dollar and GOLD – possibly causing the AUDUSD to move lower. Recently, there was some negative AUD news data released and a no change announcement to Australia’s cash rate. It has also been announced that the recent election results in Australia may cause a downgrade in their credit rating. As predicted in yesterday’s chart analysis, these events have weakened the AUD. This weakness may continue as uncertainty over Australia’s economy continues.

EURGBP – 1 Hour Chart

EURGBP 06.07.2016

As suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis, the EURGBP was bullish during yesterday’s trading sessions.

Buying opportunities could present themselves as price tests the dynamic support of the moving averages and around the trend support line (currently sitting at 0.8470).

Due to the UK leaving the EU, there has been a strong GBP sell-off. The Bank of England have suggested that a rate cut is likely to happen before the end of the year – this could give strength to the EURGBP and we may see this pair continue to move higher. The European Central Bank’s (ECB) President is planning on giving a speech today at 0800 UTC. This event is likely to cause some movement for EUR Forex pairs.
