CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. You should consider whether you understand how this product works, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

​EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD looking likely to gain ground

EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look set for further upside following short-term pullbacks.

EUR/USD rallies back into Fibonacci resistance

EUR/USD has seen a relatively volatile 24 hours, with initial losses reversing into another spike higher for the pair. With previous weakness coming around the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level of $1.1055, the question of whether we can break through this level or not will be key today.

Ultimately, we would need to see a break through $1.1111 to bring about a more bullish outlook, and until then it makes sense to look for potential weakness here. That being said, a break below $1.099 would provide us with a more convincing bearish sell signal.

GBP/USD easing back after another sharp rally

GBP/USD is in consolidation mode this morning, as the pair settles off the back of yet another sharp rally. With the Brexit talks reaching a crescendo, volatility lies ahead. However, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson clearly in favor of a Brexit deal, there is likely to be further upside for the pound despite current talks running out of time.

The worry for markets is the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, and Johnson's recent action highlight a willingness to shift his position to bring about an orderly exit. As such, further upside seems likely before long, with the current pullback looking like a retracement. A break below the $1.2516 level would be required to bring about a more bearish picture.

AUD/USD pulls back into Fibonacci support

AUD/USD has been weakening from the 61.8% Fibonacci resistance level of $0.6809 this week. However, with short-term higher highs in play, the pullback into 76.4% support at $0.6734 brings about an interesting crossroads.

A rally from here could bring a deeper retracement, yet a break below $0.671 would signal that wider bearish picture coming back into play from here.
