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 all on the rise

A weakening US dollar has given EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD the space to rally for the time being.

EUR/USD looks to extend recent gains

The rally continues for EUR/USD, with impressive gains over the past 48 hours.

Further moves higher target $1.123, while a fresh higher low would provide another buying opportunity, with a drop to $1.09 likely to encounter rising trendline support.

GBP/USD pushes on with rising trend

GBP/USD has also seen good gains since the middle of the week, creating a rising trend of higher highs and higher lows that looks set to continue.

With the 50- and 100-day simple moving averages (SMAs) rising, the direction of travel seems clear, with further gains targeting $1.236 and then $1.259.

AUD/USD boosted by reviving risk appetite

The rebound in risk assets has proven to be positive for AUD/USD too, with the pair forming an uptrend from the lows of last week.

Yesterday saw a dip to $0.588, with a rally from here establishing a new higher high. Further gains head towards $0.625, while a more bearish view requires a move back below $0.587.
