EUR/USD Current price: 1.2416View Live Chart for the EUR/USD
The EUR/USD spiked to a daily high of 1.2441 ahead of the US opening, holding inside yesterday’s range, and showing not enough strength to overcome key 1.2450 area. While the hourly chart shows indicators mostly flat in neutral territory, a slightly bullish tone persists as per a short term ascendant trend line capping the downside, currently around 1.2390. In bigger time frames, indicators hold in overbought levels with no signs of turning lower, suggesting a break above mentioned resistance should open doors for an acceleration towards 1.2500/20 area. Break below the trend line however, will likely see a retest of 200 EMA and yesterday’s low, both around 1.2340.

AUD/USD: Current price: 1.0580View Live Chart for the AUD/USD (select the currency)
Having reached 1.0602 following RBA’s decision to left rates on hold at 5.8%, the AUD/USD holds to its bullish tone according to technical readings: the hourly chart shows price above 20 SMA, while a short term ascendant trend line caps the downside in the short term around 1.0570. Indicators are lacking strength despite holding in positive territory, so a break of mentioned line may favor a downside corrective movement, yet dips are still seen as buying opportunities in the pair. In the 4 hours chart price holds in a consolidative range with indicators losing strength but standing in positive territory. A break above mentioned high should open doors for a run towards the mid 1.0600’ later on the day.
Support levels: 1.0570 1.0535 1.0500
Resistance levels: 1.0605 1.0640 1.0670
