TriumphFX Intraday Forex Analysis – 1 Hour Charts – July 06, 2017


 

AUDUSD – 1 Hour Chart

 

AUDUSD - 06.07.2017

As suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis, price reversed around the shorter-term moving average and continues to downtrend. The moving averages are bearish and are widening, signalling that the selling momentum may continue. Shorting opportunities could exist around the dynamic resistance of the moving averages and around the recent swing high at 0.7625. The AUDUSD could stall or reverse around the recent swing low at 0.7570.

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.

A US Non-Farm Employment Change figure is set to be released at 1215 UTC today. This is followed by US Unemployment Claims at 1230 UTC, Non-Manufacturing PMI at 1400 UTC and Crude Oil Inventories at 1600 UTC.

 

EURGBP – 1 Hour Chart

 

EURGBP - 06.07.2017

Price continues to be indecisive. The moving averages confirm this – they have been crossing frequently and are now moving sideways. The EURGBP is ranging between horizontal levels at 0.8760 and 0.8805. Trading opportunities may exist around the range support and resistance areas and if price moves out of the range (break-out trade).

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 today that will directly impact this currency pair.
