EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD gain ground in early trade

EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD on the rise, but questions remain for the Australian dollar despite hawkish RBA stance.

EUR/USD awaits breakout from continuation pattern

EUR/USD is trading within a pennant formation, with the pair pausing after the gains seen last week.

To the upside, we do need to keep an eye out for a potential break through the $1.1897 level as a signal that we are set for another leg higher. Meanwhile, a drop back below $1.185 would point towards a deeper pullback coming into play.

GBP/USD turning higher after 76.4% pullback

GBP/USD has started to regain bullish momentum following a retracement into the 76.4% Fibonacci level at $1.3876.

The ongoing uptrend points towards a bullish session ahead, with a positive outlook in play unless the price drops below $1.3843.

AUD/USD back into confluence of resistance

AUD/USD has been on the rise overnight, with a hawkish Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) stance bringing gains for the Australian dollar.

However, that takes us into the confluence of 61.8% and trendline resistance. With the trend of lower highs in place, this recent grind higher still looks like a potential precursor to further weakness unless the price breaks up through the $0.7503 swing-high.
