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 and GBP/USD falter but AUD/USD keeps pushing higher

A stronger US dollar is hitting EUR/USD and GBP/USD, but AUD/USD is still attempting to push higher.

EUR/USD pushes lower again

The sellers appear to be in control in EUR/USD once more, as the price drops down further, having already lost ground over the past two sessions.

The loss of trendline support early yesterday was a signal that more weakness may be on the way, with further downside heading towards $1.083. A recovery back above $1.093 would help to negate the more bearish view and put the pair back on a path to challenge $1.10.

GBP/USD heading down after trendline break

The resurgence of the US dollar has dealt a major blow to the rally in cable over the past month, and may well signal that it is at an end. Like EUR/USD, the price of GBP/USD has dropped below rising trendline support and the bounce from Monday’s lows is now in the process of creating a lower high at $1.248.

Further declines below $1.24 bring $1.232 and $1.225 into view. Alternatively, the price needs to recover $1.25 to revive the bullish view.

AUD/USD looks to continue recovery

The AUD/USD pair has closed the weekend gap down and is busily attempting to recover more of the gains lost since last Thursday.

Having established a higher low at $0.6375 the price has pushed higher, but now needs to move on to clear $0.6475 to challenge the highs of last week above $0.655. With stochastics looking as if they are about to roll over, some bearish momentum may develop, bringing Monday’s lows at $0.6375 into play once again.
