TriumphFX Intraday Forex Analysis – 1 Hour Charts – June 29, 2017


 

AUDUSD – 1 Hour Chart

 

AUDUSD - 29.06.2017

As suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis, the AUDUSD moved above the horizontal channel resistance area and has since been bullish. The moving averages are bullish and are steady, signalling that the buying momentum could continue and that price may start up-trending. Long opportunities could exist around the previous horizontal channel resistance at 0.7625, around the dynamic support of the moving averages and around the trend support area.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) recently decided to hold rates at 1.50%. The Australian Dollar continues to be attractive to currency investors due to the yield on carry trades but there is no major economic indicator that suggests that the RBA will raise rates any time soon. As expected, the US Federal Reserve rate has increased to 1.25%. Another rate hike is expected by the end of the calendar year. If political uncertainties continue in the US, there could be some weakness in the US Dollar, especially if the political uncertainties intensify.

EURGBP – 1 Hour Chart

 

EURGBP - 29.06.2017

The EURGBP has re-entered the consolidation area and is once again looking indecisive. The moving averages confirm the market indecision – they have been crossing frequently and are now moving sideways. Price found support around the previous symmetrical triangle support area (as suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis) but is lacking direction. Trading opportunities may exist around the identified diagonal support area, around the moving averages and around the horizontal levels at 0.8770 and 0.8875.

Article 50 has been triggered – the UK has started negotiations for leaving the European Union. The Conservative government has lost some parliamentary seats and has had to form a minority government to stay in power.  There is concern that this decision may create more political and economic uncertainty for the UK. Recent economic indicators for the UK are suggesting an unexpected slow-down but the Bank of England have an increased favour for increasing interest rates – creating more optimism and strength for the GBP. The ECB have announced that the economic future of the Eurozone is looking more stable and that deflation and economic slow-down is low-risk. This has caused great strength for the Euro.

There is no major scheduled news that will directly impact this currency pair during today’s trading sessions.

 

EURUSD – 1 Hour Chart

 

EURUSD - 29.06.2017

As suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis, price retraced some of the recent bullish move and has since moved much higher. The moving averages are bullish and are widening, suggesting that the EURUSD could continue to uptrend. Price is looking a little over-extended, signalling that a retracement may be due. If the EURUSD does start retracing, buying opportunities could exist around the dynamic support of the moving averages and around the previous horizontal resistance at 1.1280.

As expected, the US Federal Reserve rate has increased to 1.25%. Another rate hike is expected by the end of the calendar year. If political uncertainties continue in the US, there could be some weakness in the US Dollar, especially if the uncertainties intensify. The ECB have announced that the economic future of the Eurozone is looking more stable and that deflation and economic slow-down is low-risk.
