AUDUSD – 1 Hour Chart

 

AUDUSD - 10.09.2018

As suggested in Friday’s chart analysis, the AUDUSD moved below the horizontal channel support area and has since been bearish. Price action has formed a series of lower swing lows and lower swing highs – the AUDUSD is down-trending. The moving averages are bearish and widening, signalling that the downtrend could continue. Selling opportunities may exist around the previous horizontal support at 0.7160, around the dynamic resistance of the moving averages and around the trend resistance area. Price could continue to find support around the recent lows at 0.7100.

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.  Recent inflation forecasts were worse than expected, weakening the AUD. 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.

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

 

EURGBP – 1 Hour Chart

 

EURGBP - 10.09.2018

The EURGBP moved below the range support area and has since been bearish (as suggested in Friday’s chart analysis).

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.

UK GDP and manufacturing production figures will be released at 0830 UTC today.
