FxWirePro: AUD/USD holds marginal gains on improved risk sentiment, focus on US Durable Goods data for further impetus
FxWirePro- EURUSD trade weak due to increase in demand for safe-haven, good to sell on rallies
Ichimoku analysis (1-Hour chart)
EURUSD is trading weak after a minor pullback above the 1.1800 level. The surge in delta variant Coronavirus and decline in German IFO business climate is putting pressure on Euro. The slump in Chinese tech shares for the second consecutive days due to a crackdown by Chinese authorities on tech and other industries has increased demand for safe-haven like the US dollar. Markets eye US durable goods orders and Conference board consumer confidence for further direction. The pair hits an intraday low of 1.17744 and is currently trading around 1.17780.
On the higher side, near-term resistance is around 1.1835 and any convincing breach above will take to the next level 1.1880/1.19070/1.19655/1.200. The pair's near-term support is at 1.1750, break below targets 1.1700/1.1660.
