EURAUD pair is seeking Friday’s low on thin markets as it is set to continue moving sideways. Read on to see how it trades at the moment on the 19 February EURAUD Technical Analysis.
19 February, GKFX – EUR/AUD is indecisive to start off the week, testing the week’s open price and Friday’s low of 1.5676. With China’s institutions shuttered for the first half of the week to celebrate Chinese New Year, Asia markets promise thin volumes and muted price moves going forward into the next few days.
EUR/AUD has largely consolidated for 12 straight trading days as the Euro and the Aussie struggle to compete with each other, as both currencies have shown to be susceptible to selling off in the recent risk events that saw dramatic swings in market confidence in equities and the US Dollar.
Between the two, the Aussie is likely to wind up the bigger loser, as middling economic growth is keeping the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) firmly in wait-and-see mode in regards to interest rates, with many analysts anticipating no movement from the RBA in 2018, while other central banks around the globe are gearing up to begin raising rates soon.
ECB Non-Monetary Policy Meeting
The European Central Bank (ECB) will be posting their Non-Monetary Policy Minutes on Wednesday at 08:00 GMT, where the topic of discussion will largely be Brexit and talking points with the EU’s lead Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier. Europe also has their Eurogroup and EcoFin meetings on Monday and Tuesday respectively, where the topics of discussion will largely be activities and future plans for within the Eurozone looking into the future.
