As suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis, the AUDUSD has been bearish and has swung lower. Price continues to downtrend.

Recent employment and other economic data for the US has been very positive. This suggests that there could be further rate hikes in the near future. This has given strength to the US Dollar.

EURGBP – 1 Hour Chart

 

EURGBP - 15.06.2018

The EURGBP moved below the range support area and has since been bearish (as suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis). Price has been finding support around the horizontal support level at 0.8720 (as identified in yesterday’s chart analysis). The EURGBP continues to look choppy and indecisive.

Recent economic indicators for the UK have been positive and Brexit negotiations seem to be progressing – giving strength to the GBP. The Bank of England recently increased the base interest rate by 0.25%. There are hints that the Bank of England (BOE) will hike the interest rate again in the near future. The ECB have announced that the economic future of the Euro-zone is looking more stable and that deflation and economic slow-down is low-risk – the euro-zone economy is performing well. Recent comments by the ECB have been fairly dovish though. Most economists believe that the current economy boom will slow-down and that an interest rate hike is not in the near future.
