AUDUSD - 09.08.2018

As suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis, the AUDUSD has been bullish and is forming a swing higher. The moving averages are still bullish and are steady, signalling that the bullish momentum may continue.

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.

EURGBP – 1 Hour Chart

 

EURGBP - 09.08.2018

The EURGBP continues to be bullish and has moved higher (as suggested in yesterday’s chart analysis). Price is above the recent consolidation area and the moving averages are bullish and widening, all signalling that the EURGBP could start up-trending. If price starts retracing, opportunities to go long may exist around any of the key Fib levels, around the moving averages and around the previous horizontal resistance at 0.8955.

Recent economic indicators for the UK have been positive – giving strength to the GBP. The Bank of England (BOE) recently increased the base interest rate by 0.25%. The economic outlook for the near future is “modest”. Political indecision over the Brexit plan and uncertainty over the future of the UK’s trade deals is weakening the GBP. 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 economic boom will slow-down and that an interest rate hike is not in the near future.

There is no major scheduled news today that will directly impact this currency pair.
