AUDUSD – Daily Chart

AUDUSD - Daily - 05.08.2016

The AUDUSD is currently testing a potential triangular consolidation resistance area. The moving averages are bearish but are tightening, suggesting that price could still move higher. There could be a potential selling opportunity around the consolidation resistance area. A buying opportunity may present itself if price closes above the resistance area and tests the area as support.

The Bank of Australia have decided to hold rates at the low of 1.50% – this as well as other poor economic data has contributed to some weakness in the Australian Dollar. As expected, the Fed hasn’t changed US rates but have kept them at the low rate 0.50% – this has contributed to some weakness in the US Dollar. US Non-Farm Employment Change data is set to be released at 1230 UTC today. This event is likely to cause a lot of volatility and market movement. US Average Earnings and Unemployment Rate data is set to be released at the same time.

EURUSD – Daily Chart

EURUSD - Daily - 05.08.2016

The future of the Euro is very unclear (not uncertain, just indecisive). As expected, the Fed hasn’t changed US rates but have kept them at the low rate of 0.50% – this has contributed to some weakness in the US Dollar. The EURUSD has been rallying since the Fed announcement and may now have some clear price direction. US Non-Farm Employment Change data is set to be released at 1230 UTC today. This event is likely to cause a lot of volatility and market movement. US Average Earnings and Unemployment Rate data is set to be released at the same time.
