AUDUSD – 1 Hour Chart

 

AUDUSD - 22.06.2018

Price has been down-trending but is now moving sideways and looking a little indecisive. The moving averages confirm the indecision – they are tightening and are moving sideways. The AUDUSD is ranging between the horizontal support at 0.7345 and the horizontal resistance at 0.7405. Trading opportunities may exist around the support and resistance of the range and if price closes out of the range (break-out trade).

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) have held the official interest rate at 1.5% for over 18 months. The Australian economy continues to grow at a steady pace and produce positive economic indicators under the low interest rate – giving incentive to keep the rate as it is.  The US Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)  recently raised rates to 2.00%. 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.

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% and plan to increase rates again in the very 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.
