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 falls as GBP/USD and AUD/USD recover

The euro remains under pressure against the dollar, while AUD/USD attempts to continue its ongoing rally and GBP/USD pushes higher in the wake of the BoE meeting this morning.

EUR/USD continues to fall

EUR/USD remains under pressure from the beginning of the week, moving steadily lower.

Having broken trendline support on Monday the downtrend has intensified, with little in the way of near-term rebounds. A move through $1.082 would break trendline resistance and bring $1.092 into view. Further declines head towards the late-April low at $1.073.

GBP/USD spikes following BoE meeting

GBP/USD has spiked this morning following the Bank of England (BoE) decision, breaking through trendline resistance from the 29 April high.

Further gains head towards $1.248, and from there on to $1.265. A renewed push lower heads towards $1.225 and the 21 April low.

AUD/USD rallies from key support

A trading range has developed here, as the AUD/USD price finds support for a second time this week at $0.638, while it has yet to break resistance at $0.647.

A move above here clears the way towards last week’s highs at $0.657. Alternatively, further declines head towards $0.625 if $0.638 is broken.
