Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. The risks of loss from investing in CFDs can be substantial and the value of your investments may fluctuate. 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 declines provide potential buying opportunity

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and AUD/USD weakness provides a potential buying opportunity given recent uptrends.

​EUR/USD starts to ease back within uptrend

EUR/USD has drifted lower overnight, following the latest push higher for a pair that has clearly enjoyed plenty of upside over recent months.

That uptrend does still remain intact here, with the latest pullback looking like a retracement of the rally from the $1.2224 swing low. A break below that level would bring a wider retracement into view. However, until that break occurs, another move higher looks likely from here.

GBP/USD retraces as Brexit talks reach crucial period

GBP/USD been outperforming over the course of the week thus far, with last Sunday's deadline providing a decision to continue talks. Those talks seem to have made headway over the course of the week, yet time is running thin.

Another deadline has been mentioned for this coming Sunday, meaning we are likely to see a significant gap over the weekend. The hourly chart highlights a clear uptrend playing out over the course of the week. However, with price retracing into the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level, there is a good chance we will see the bulls come back into play from here. A break below the $1.3451 level would be required to negate that bullish short-term outlook.

AUD/USD pullback unlikely to last

AUD/USD has been losing ground since yesterday’s peak of $0.764, with the price moving back towards the previous breakout level of 0.7578.

The wider uptrend points towards this being a likely retracement precursor to further upside. As such, further short-term weakness would be deemed a buying opportunity unless the price breaks $0.7539 support. Watch out for Fibonacci and trendline support as potential buying areas should the price fall further.
