Thanks to our donors, is able to deliver quality investment advice, market analysis and technical trading guidelines and general information of use to investors and traders on a regular basis.

Current level is 0.7660, trading above the rising 40 week moving average of 0.7497. This currency pair has been within a narrowing wedge since July 2016, currently marked out between 0.7150 and 0.7760. It is difficult to assess how long the current period of consolidation will last, but given the fact that the 40 week moving average is now poised to the upside, the odds are in favour of a breach of the 0.78 level which will then put focus on 0.8450, corresponding to the Fibonacci 38.2 percent retracement from the low of 0.6824, measured from the July 2011 high of 1.1080.
