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 turn higher amid dollar weakness

EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD push higher, as risk-on sentiment helps drive dollar weakness.

EUR/USD continues its grind higher

EUR/USD has been on the rise over the course of July thus far, with the pair hitting a tentative four-month high this morning.

While that failed to hold, the intraday uptrend remains intact unless we see a break below the $1.137 swing low from last Thursday. Until then, further upside looks likely before long.

GBP/USD breaks through key resistance level

GBP/USD has managed to break through the key $1.267 resistance level overnight, with the pound surging at the beginning of the week. That rise through $1.267 points towards further upside to come, with the next major resistance level up ahead coming in the form of the $1.2813 peak from June.

To the downside, a break below the $1.265 level would be required to bring about a potential short-term pullback and retracement of the rally from $1.248. Until then, further upside looks likely in the short term.

AUD/USD pushes higher after Fibonacci retracement

AUD/USD has continued its ascent after finding support on the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level last week, with the pair breaking through the $0.7037 peak.

That takes us back into a zone of resistance which encompasses a host of historical highs, with the price needing a break through the $0.7082 level to bring about a fresh wider bullish breakout. Until then, it is worthwhile following the short-term trend, with a bullish outlook in play unless we see a break below the $0.6963 level.
