AUD to EUR – Australian Dollars to Euro

When converting Australian dollars to Euro (AUD to EUR), or EUR to AUD, by exchanging via Direct FX, you will save a significant amount of money. Our wholesale currency exchange rates for money transfers are significantly more competitive than bank foreign exchange rates. Being Australasian based, we specialise in knowing what drives AUD/EUR currency conversion rates.

AUD to EUR Overview: From the establishment of the Euro zone, until the financial market crisis of 2008, the AUD and EUR both traded in a relatively stable and correlated fashion. However since 2008 this close correlation has broken down considerably. The Australian economy has maintained upward momentum through its close links to the quickly developing Asian economies. The EURO however has been plagued by sovereign debt issues from its smaller nations, as Germany remains its engine for growth.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) traded higher off the weekly open of 0.6150 (1.6270) to 0.6170 (1.6200) into Tuesday against the Euro (EUR) as risk market improved. It was a sea of red Monday with French and German Manufacturing figures and Services PMI figures printing weaker than expected as well as the Eurozone PMI for September releasing at 45.6 a six year low. Also putting the Euro on the back foot was Draghi speaking in Brussels where he admitted that the Eurozone is unlikely to recover in the medium term. RBA Governor Lowe speaks tonight as he comes under increasing pressure to cut rates below 1.0%. With a number of market players calling for a cut at next week’s cash rate announcement his words could be interesting. We expect the EUR to build pressure and possibly retest support at 0.6100 (1.6400)

Except for some early week pressures on the Euro (EUR) the currency has risen further against the Australian Dollar (AUD) to 0.6140 (1.6290) on broad risk sentiment. Australian jobs data released higher than expectations with an additional 22,000 people being added to the workforce, but it was the unemployment rate rising to 5.3% from 5.2% which pulled the Aussie lower into Friday. The Aussie was already under pressure from the Fed’s hawkish cut but extending declines further on a lack of positive sentiment. Next week’s German and French manufacturing and Services PMI is the focus. On the downside 0.6100 (1.6400) offers decent support for the Aussie.

After the ECB confirmed their new stimulus measures to boost the eurozone by restarting fresh quantitative easing, this has been a source of strength for the EUR (EURO) against the Australian Dollar (AUD) clawing back losses to trade at 0.6210 (1.6100) at the weekly close. Several ECB members have voiced their displeasure of the QE package saying it’s a mistake. Hopes for fiscal stimulus out of Germany is also favouring the EUR currently. Looking ahead Australian employment figures release Thursday and should boost the AUD with a good result. Price looks to retest key support at 0.6290 (1.5900) based on recent action.

After three weeks of declines for the Euro (EUR), versus the Australian Dollar (AUD) to fresh lows of 0.6280 (1.5920) the EUR has bounced back to 0.6205 (1.6115) over the ECB monetary policy announcement last night. As expected, the ECB unveiled new stimulus measures to boost the eurozone including cutting the deposit rate from -0.4% to -0.5%. The main interest rate remains at zero. The meeting confirmed the restart of fresh quantitative easing in the form of 20B EUR every month starting on the 1st of November 2019. This move comes as a direct reflection on the status of not only poor economic health in the Eurozone but global uncertainty. Further momentum extending to 0.6120 (1.6350) will strengthen the case for further downside bias.

The interbank range this week has been: AUDEUR 0.6200- 0.6287 EURAUD 1.5904- 1.6128

The Euro (EUR) has retreated eight days straight against a buoyant Australian Dollar (AUD) to 0.6215 (1.6090) Tuesday. This comes after five weeks of declines for the Aussie on the back of improved risk sentiment. Last week’s RBA announcement left rates unchanged at 1.0% but suggested a cut may be required data dependant- markets viewed the statement as less dovish which improved the AUD. Thursday’s ECB rate announcement and monetary statement holds main focus this week with speculation around how much the new QE program will be. Resistance is seen around 0.6290 (1.5900) with reasonable chances of a retest at this level over the week.

After five months of declines in the Australian Dollar (AUD) versus the Euro (EUR) we should see the week close higher with the Aussie reversing some of these losses. Currently we see the cross trade around 0.6175 (1.6190) mark based on improvement in risk appetite and AUD data impressing over the week. The RBA left rates unchanged at 1.0% but suggested a cut may be required data dependant- markets viewed the statement as less dovish which improved the AUD.GBP printed back on expectations and Trade Balance was slightly above the 7.2B surplus predicted. Next week we have the ECB cash rate and monetary policy statement. 80% of economists are expecting an easing package to be introduced and further quantitative easing to start in October. A cut to -0.50% is priced in as well. The ECB haven’t got much choice as the inflation isn’t likely to pick up any time soon, especially given the state of the Eurozone and more importantly the world economic outlook. We suggest a retest of 1.6320 in the coming weeks as global risks are skewed to the downside.

After nearly three months of downtrends in the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) cross these moves are looking exhausted. Price today is trading around 0.61130 (1.6320) after the Aussie recovered Friday from 0.6080 (1.6450) mainly due to poor building approvals for July at -9.7% from the 0.0% expected took the Aussie lower, this was after poor construction work done figures earlier in the week. What’s interesting Australian House prices look to have bottomed with figures showing a pick up of 0.8% in August as buyers came back into the market. The Euro calendar is bare this week with the cross to get its shifts from today’s RBA cash rate announcement and monetary statement. Later also quarterly GDP and Thursday’s Trade Balance may bring about decent price swings. Resistance sits at 0.6130 (1.6310)

Despite poor Australian economic data this week the Aussie has feared reasonably well against the Euro (EUR) holding up around the 0.6085 (1.6430) area. Construction figures followed by CAPEX results deteriorated. Construction in Australia has worsened with a contraction over the second quarter falling by 3.8%. Building Approvals release today and may reflect further building activity declines. Next week is a busy week of data with Australian Retail Sales the RBA cash rate and key second quarter GDP. There are no expectations of the RBA to cut rates lower than the current 1.0% for now until November.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) traded sharply lower off the weekly open against the Euro (EUR) to 0.5995 (1.6680) before bouncing higher through Tuesday back to 0.6105 (1.6380) as risk sentiment improved. With the ECB looking to increase easing we have seen windows of EUR weakness over the past four weeks or so. As long as risk flows support the AUD we should see price move towards 0.6200 (1.6120) over the coming few weeks.

In line with other crosses the Australian dollar (AUD) has also slid lower against the Euro (EUR), currently trading at 0.6098 (1.6400) after a high of 0.6132 earlier in the week. With the ECB set to ramp up easing measures the race is on as to who jumps first the ECB or RBA. We look for AUD weakness on this cross.

Following on from talk of a possible third quarter Germany recession after figures posted showed a decline in GDP in the second quarter markets have consolidated around 0.6110 (1.6370) with the Australian Dollar (AUD) looking stable post last week’s employment figures. Aussie wage price inflation improved to 0.6% from 0.5% for the quarter to June with an increase to the number of new people employed which rose from a flat 500 in June to 41,000 in July after an expected 15,000 was predicted. The unemployment rate stayed at 5.2% since rising in March from 5.0%. Today’s 1.30 NZT RBA minutes holds market focus with investors saying we won’t get much of a surprise to recent easing bias with the central bank remaining in monitoring status for now. With recent deterioration in the trade was we expect more of the same comments.

The Euro (EUR) took on water Wednesday after a round of soft data dropping lower to 0.6105 (1.6380) after rallying earlier in the week to 0.6020 (1.6620) against the Australian Dollar (AUD). A contraction in second quarter GDP printed at -0.1% and grew by 0.4% compared to the same quarter in 2018. The figures follow an upside surprise of 0.4% in the first quarter of 2019 showing the economy is still growing over the first half of the year- Just. These weak figures could suggest we may see a contraction in the third quarter which would put Germany in a recession. Aussie wage price inflation improved to 0.6% from 0.5% for the quarter to June with an increase to the number of new people employed which rose from a flat 500 in June to 41,000 in July after an expected 15,000 was predicted. The unemployment rate stayed at 5.2% since rising in March from 5.0%. UK Retail Sales rose unexpectedly to 0.2% based on predictions of -0.3% highlighting consumers were still spending.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) got a little relief late in the week against the Euro (EUR) returning to 0.6090 (1.6410) from 0.5960 (1.6780) but as the week came to a close the Aussie was back under pressure as risk based assets deteriorated. NAB Business Confidence and Westpac Consumer Sentiment along with Australian wage data and unemployment will be the focus on the economic docket this week. If risk off markets continue into Friday we could see last week’s low broken and levels somewhere mid 0.59’s develop.

The Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair still sits below pivotal support at a multiyear low Friday of 0.6065 (1.6485). Wednesday’s RBNZ cash rate cut from 1.5% to 1.0% announcement saw the Aussie dive lower in sympathy to 0.5955 (1.6790) the first time in many years we have seen a price below 0.6000 (1.6665). The RBA announced Tuesday they were keeping the benchmark cash rate at 1.0% with the global outlook remaining questionable and inflation expectations low. This had very little impact on the Aussie dollar movement after the release. An easing bias still remains for the RBA with expectations of further cuts expected based on a “if needed” scenario. Eurozone data is thin this week and has generally been well supported in line with an overall risk off tone.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) passed 0.6060 (1.6500) heavy support Monday against the Euro (EUR) to enter into multiyear low territory currently trading at 0.6035 (1.6570). In years around currencies I can’t remember ever seeing the AUDEUR trade into the 0.50’s. Today’s RBA interest rate decision holds huge market focus with back to back cuts recently we are not expecting the RBA to go lower on this occasion. Special interest around how governor Lowe perceives the local economy and how future data may influence further easing later in the year to be key. There is no press conference after the meeting, which is usually a sign that a no change is in store. Eurozone have nothing of note on the calendar this week and could be well supported in line with a deteriorated risk tone.

Last week’s sharp U turn in price from 0.6290 (1.5900) levels in the Euro (EUR), Australian Dollar (AUD) pair to 0.6130 (1.6310) has been a remarkable shift. Over Thursday’s European trading session price has come from 0.6200 (1.6130). Positive sentiment towards the EUR from last week’s ECB no change to monetary policy continues to support the EUR this week. GDP in the eurozone continues to grow but not fast enough to meet the ECB’s target of around 1.0% with the ECB expected to ease policy at the September meeting. Australian CPI q/q surprised markets by releasing at 0.6% taking y/y CPI to 1.6% versus the previous 1.5% but we still believe the RBA will cut rates to 0.75% at next week’s RBA meeting. Support of 0.6080 (1.6450) is nearing closer with the last time price was trading at this level was August 2015.

Last week’s price reversal from the high of 0.6290 (1.5900) has continued into Monday with the Euro (EUR) making all the play against the Australian Dollar (AUD) pushing price lower to 0.6190 (1.6150). No cut to the fragile EU situation last week sent buyers back into the EUR with Draghi stopping short of saying rates would drop but he was clearly preparing markets for things to come, possibly changes in the next meeting in September. Draghi said a significant amount of stimulus was needed to make sure the financial environment supports growth in the Eurozone. Aussie quarterly CPI and EU Flash CPI y/y are the focus this week on the calendar and print tomorrow. Short term support for the AUD is 0.6160 (1.6230)

The Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair swung wildly during the European trading session overnight with the ECB announcement interest rates would remain at record lows for now or at least until early 2020. Price initially went to 0.6280 (1.5920) then a “no-cut” to rates sent positivity through markets sending the EUR to 0.6215 (1.6090) Draghi stopped short of saying rates would drop but he was clearly preparing markets for things to come possibly changes in the next meeting in September. Draghi said a significant amount of stimulus was needed to make sure the financial environment supports growth in the Eurozone. He went on to say they were researching possibilities of further QE with TLTROs in the picture.

The interbank range this week has been: AUDEUR 0.6215- 0.6292 EURAUD 1.5892- 1.6090

Gains in this pair have stalled in recent days, with the Australian dollar (AUD) twice failing to overcome resistance around the 0.6300 area vs the Euro (EUR). This may well be the precursor to a corrective pullback that would target initial support around 0.6235. If we do get a break above 0.6300 then the market would target 0.6350, but it is looking like upside momentum is waning somewhat and at this stage we’re favoring a test of downside support, before the pair attempts another leg higher. The EUR itself has been hampered recently by speculation about potential new stimulus measures to be announced at this week’s ECB meeting. That meeting will be the primary focus for the market and it will drive the pair over the latter stage of this week. Ahead of that meeting we do have a raft of PMI’s from Europe to digest along with a speech from RBA Gov Lowe.

The AUDEUR rally that started back in late June has continued this week with the pair making fresh cycle highs at 0.6280 in the past 12 hours. The AUD breathed a sigh of relief after yesterday Australian employment data suggested the RBA can take its time in deciding when to cut interest rates again. The gain of 21k full time jobs, and the stable unemployment rate, make it unlikely the RBA will deliver a third successive interest rate cut at their next meeting. There is some resistance around the 0.6300 area, and then again at 0.6350. On the downside initial support is seen at 0.6235. RBA Gov Lowe speaks next week, while from Europe we get manufacturing and service PMI’s along with the European Central Bank’s Monetary Policy Statement.

Relentless Australian dollar (AUD) gains have been the theme of the past week and against the Euro (EUR) there has been no exception. The pair briefly traded to a low of 0.6161 mid last week, but the bullish AUD move since then has seen an overnight high of 0.6254 trade. The trigger for these AUD gains was a dovish testimony from US Fed Chair Powell, but they have also been helped by solid Chinese activity data released yesterday. Momentum is certainly in the Aussie’s favor at the moment and this move may well have further to run. The market will pay close attention to today’s RBA minutes as well as Thursday’s release of Australian employment data.

The Australian dollar (AUD) has lost ground to the Euro (EUR) this week, suffering after some disappointing local consumer sentiment and business confidence data. The pair has manged to stage something of a recovery off the weeks low, at 0.6161, to currently trade at 0.6199, but near term direction is far from certain. Longer term we suspect strong support around 0.6100 should to put a floor under the pair and we suspect further test toward 0.6250 will likely be seen over the coming week or two.

The interbank range this week has been: AUDEUR 0.6161 – 0.6236 EURAUD 1.6036 – 1.6230

The Australian dollar (AUD) has been gaining on the Euro (EUR) since late June, and these gains peaked at 0.6231 in the second half of last week. Since then we have seen the pair consolidate just below that high as the market awaits the next move. We increasingly believe that move will be another leg higher for the AUDEUR with a medium term target of 0.6360. Locally, we have Australian Business Confidence and Consumer Sentiment to digest of the coming days. Support is seen coming in around 0.6180 and that should contain any potential periods of weakness in the near term.

The Australian Dollar has extended last week’s gains against the Euro (EUR) from the low of 0.6090 (1.6415) into Friday clocking 0.6225 (1.6060) The RBA cut their benchmark cash rate from 1.25% to 1.0% Wednesday for the second straight month. The first time back to back cuts have happened in seven years as the RBA tries to front foot ongoing slowing growth. The sole policy of every central bank in the world is asset price inflation by providing cheap money to stimulate growth and inflation. Interestingly the statement appeared less dovish than markets felt and strangely put the AUD back on the road north. Retail Sales and Australian Trade Balance have come in above expectations helping to boost the AUD. We see very little on the economic docket next week for the pair.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) turned lower off the weekly open to 0.6150 (1.6250) after dominating the Euro (EUR) last week. Posting an earlier three week high of 0.6190 (1.6150) the Aussie lost steam after risk markets lost bite. The ceasefire between the US and China has relaxed markets for now but we don’t believe this will continue with tensions to increase. Eurozone Core inflation y/y came in on expectations of 1.2% for June showing a stable release based on May’s 0.8%, this was the catalyst for the Euro to recoup some lost ground. Attention now is with the 4.30pm NZT RBA statement and cash rate release. Market forecasters remain split as to a cut today or if they will leave the benchmark rate in place until August. Those that believe a cut is in store today should consider buying EUR ahead of a possible dip in the currency back to 0.6100 (1.6395) Australian Building Approvals and later Retail Sales prints could reflect moderate shifts to price.

Just when we thought price in the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair would continue to drop through 0.6075 (1.6460) and break new ground we have seen fresh support for the Aussie as it peeled back losses from the past 3 weeks to 0.6165 (1.6220). ECB’s Mario Draghi recent speech reconfirmed his dovishness with the next wave of cuts and measures to take place as early as July. His economic roundup was unmistakably downbeat. German economic sentiment decreased sharply for June as the economic sentiment continues to worsen in line with the global economy. RBA’s Lowe spoke Monday saying risks to the global economy are tilted to the downside, while the global economy has slowed the outlook still remains reasonable. With climbing commodity prices and equities, risk related currencies have benefited over the week but this could all change once the G20 meeting starts tonight in Osaka with several key meetings taking place to dent sentiment.

The Euro (EUR) has managed to find a reasonable amount of support over the past two to three weeks against the Australian Dollar (AUD) as it trades at 0.6110 (1.6370). ECB’s Mario Draghi recent speech reconfirmed his dovishness with the next wave of cuts and measures to take place as early as July. His economic roundup was unmistakably downbeat. German economic sentiment decreased sharply for June as the economic sentiment continues to worsen in line with the global economy. RBA’s Lowe spoke Monday saying risks to the global economy are tilted to the downside, while the global economy has slowed the outlook still remains reasonable. Certainly, with recent climbing commodity prices such as iron Ore trading at multi month highs this has fundamentally held up the Aussie from dropping to much dire levels. The G20 meeting in Osaka starting Thursday should give a fair dose of volatility.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) traded a historical low of 0.6080 (1.6450) against the Euro (EUR) early week before staging a decent come back reversal retracing to 0.6145 (1.6270) ECB’s Mario Draghi speech midweek reconfirmed his dovishness with the next wave of cuts and measures to take place as early as July. His economic roundup was unmistakably downbeat. German economic sentiment decreased sharply for June as the economic sentiment continues to worsen in line with the global economy. Aussie Dollar weakness is still in play with reasonable chances we may retest the prior low of 0.6080 (1.6450). As we said earlier in the week- sellers of EUR shouldn’t get to greedy as these current levels represent incredible conversion back to AUD opportunities.

Pushing into unchartered territory and breaking through massive support at 0.6115 (1.6350) the EUR has gone on to post 0.6105 (1.6380) an August 2015 low. Any downward bias looks slim with a lower low looking more compelling as we look towards the RBA minutes this afternoon. Lowe’s comments later in the week when he speaks on “Labor Markets and Spare Capacity” will impact ahead of key French and German PMI figures. Sellers of EUR shouldn’t get to greedy as these current levels represent incredible conversion back to AUD opportunities.

The Euro (EUR) extended gains over the Australian Dollar (AUD) through Thursday to reach a level of 0.6110 (1.6360). Australian unemployment rose to 5.2% from 5.1% with the change in workforce numbers increasing to 42,000 ahead of the predicted 16,000. The problem though was most (39,000) fall under the part time category distorting the numbers. Markets focused on the rise to unemployment which has sent the Aussie lower. The question is are the numbers good enough for the RBA to halt a rate cut in July or will they wait until August? We are expecting a downward forecast to GDP as well which should keep the Aussie under the pump. Friday’s price retraced back to 0.6135 (1.6300) more than likely on profit taking.

After a choppy week in the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair hovering around the 0.6200 (1.6120) area the Euro has made a push for new territory off Monday’s open. Currently trading at pivotal support of 0.6150 (1.6250) a yearly low, a break lower looks compelling given the recent lack of support for the Aussie. Holidays in Australia, France and Germany yesterday saw thin market trading in the cross and higher volatility develop. A break below 0.6135 (1.6300) would confirm a fresh leg of downside momentum if data doesn’t impress this week for the AUD. NAB Business Confidence today should give us a better look followed by Thursday’s jobs figures.

This cross has remained relatively steady this week , albeit with a gradual AUD weakness…opened the week at 0.6225 and drifted lower to around 0.6189 but has staged a mild recovery on weaker EUR data to 0.6205. Most of the AUD negative news is now priced into this cross and any surprise from the ECB announcement tonight is likely to see this cross pressure the EUR back to the 0.6225 level and above. Continuing solid iron ore prices should hold any AUD retreat at the 0.6150 support level.

Over the past week, the Australian dollar has started to regain some of the ground lost to the Euro (EUR) since mid-April. While we don’t discount further potential dips in the pair, it does look like the broader AUDEUR down trend, that’s been in place for nearly six weeks, has run out of steam. The Australian Dollar (AUD) still must negotiate its way through next week’s RBA interest rate meeting, and the almost certain cut in interest rates, but that’s is now largely priced into the market, so it shouldn’t cause the AUD to fall out of bed at all. We would suggest any further dips toward support around 0.6150 are a good opportunity for clients looking to convert EUR to AUD.

The Euro (EUR) has been rather steady after the European Election results pushing ever so slightly higher against the Australian Dollar over the course of last week’s trading. RBA’s Lowe finally admitted the economy was running as well as predicted especially with a drop in wage numbers and inflationary pressures on the slide. The RBA is expected to cut the cash rate at their 4th June meeting with a possible two further cuts in 2019. The monetary statement will give us more clues to direction in the pair over the rest of the year. Since late April the EUR has had an edge over the depleted Aussie, we are currently trading at 0.6185 (1.6170) just 43 points off the yearly open at 0.6142 (1.6280).

The gapping to 0.6210 (1.6100) on the weekly open the Euro (EUR) has recovered to trade back around 0.6170 (1.6200) against the Australian Dollar (AUD) as it eyes last week’s low of 0.6150 (1.6260). Australian Construction numbers fall by 2.4% for the March quarter after expectations of 0.1% showed total construction was well down. This weighed on the Aussie along with the RBA minutes Tuesday reflected weak inflationary pressures, the RBA finally realising after poor recent employment data the economy is slowing. This in turn should see a cut to the cash rate at the June 4 meeting with possibly another cut to follow later in the year. The EU elections over the weekend could throw up a few surprises. Britons have been voting which was never expected to happen as they were supposed to be gone by now. With the Aussie underperforming we see a retest of the yearly low of 0.6110 (1.6360) in sight.

The AUD has gapped higher on this cross opening the week at 0.6179 , tracked all the way up to 0.6213 before settling back around the 0.6195/0.6200 level on the risk-off tone and jitters ahead of the RBA meeting minutes and RBA Governor Lowe speech later today …with European elections to be held over the next few days we remain mildly AUD positive on this cross but any advance beyond 0.6220 is likely to be weakened by the Aussie rate cut concerns.

The weaker AUD tone has been seen on this cross as even with the EUR softening against the USD the AUD has not held any ground on this cross as concerns about an RBA rate cut , weaker data and election jitters have weighed on the EUR/AUD cross…now at 0.6169 after starting the week at the 0.6230 level next support is around the 0.6130 mark which could come under test next week if the risk-off tone persists….an overall majority for either party (unlikely) in the election result should be AUD supportive.

Punching through the previous yearly low of 0.6190 (1.6150) this morning against the Euro (EUR) the currency continues to build against a weakened Australian Dollar (AUD). RBA Minutes late last week reiterated the dovish forecast with slower economic growth and inflation to reach the bottom of its band. Unemployment is still propping up any hope left of stability, wage data Thursday will most certainly give us more clues ahead of this weekend’s Australian Elections. Sellers of EUR should be eyeing current prices to sell EUR back into AUD as these levels represent extremely good selling.

The RBA has left the cash rate unchanged at a record low of 1.5% in what was said to be a neutral statement by governor Lowe. Global outlook remains reasonable with a downside bias. The Australian Dollar (AUD) traded higher off the release to 1.5920 but was met with a fresh wave of risk off sentiment in the trade was between the US and China. Price retraced through the weekly open to reach 0.6200 (1.6120). The yearly low of 0.6190 (1.6150) is now in range with current price showing attractive to sellers of EUR.

Coming off the high of 0.6377 (1.5680) mid-April the Australian Dollar (AUD) has depreciated three weeks running against the Euro (EUR) to trade at 0.6245 (1.6020) Tuesday. GDP q/q out of Spain and CPI m/m from Germany along with Eurozone CPI y/y boosted the EUR last week with price edging closer the yearly low of 0.6190 (1.6150). RBA today at 4.30pm NZT should be a cracker with investors spit as to a cut to 1.25%. We suspect the RBA will play it safe and leave the rate unchanged until later this year, reiterating a “wait and see” style approach.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has reversed all of last week’s gains trading back to 0.6260 (1.5970) against the preferred Euro (EUR) the AUD underperforming across all major crosses this week. German IFO business sentiment came in weaker than expected denting moral in April showing that Europe’s largest economy is losing momentum. IFO president Clemens said “the German economy continues to lose steam” Spanish Flash GDP said otherwise surprising markets when it printed at 0.7% from 0.6% expected and German prelim m/m CPI also released well at 1.0% from 0.5% markets had forecast. Australian Building approvals prints this afternoon and based on the result may give us a clue as to the mood of the RBA for next week’s Cash rate announcement on Tuesday. The probability of a cut is poised at 50/50 at the moment. Price sits just shy of the six week low of 0.6252 (1.5993) and looks to retest.

The Euro (EUR) outperformed the Australian Dollar (AUD) for most of the week reaching a low of 0.6265 (1.5960) with quarterly inflation disappointing at 0.0% based on expectations of 0.2% growth weakening the AUD across the board. Rising concerns over the European growth knocked the EUR late in the week with equity markets in Europe falling. The EUR gave back early gains travelling back to 0.6320 (1.5840). Germany has been the stand out performer in the EU block of late but with Germany’s benchmark 10 year government bond yield going below zero the day after disappointing German IFO sentiment survey, this brings a new set of worry to the region. Wednesday market liquidity will be affected with the French, Germany and Italian’s all taking a day off for Labour day.

The Euro (EUR) has outperformed the Australian dollar (AUD) over the past week, driving the AUD/EUR cross to a low last night of 0.6318. The pair is now approaching a key area of support just above 0.6300 and reaction here will be interesting. Today’s Australian inflation data may well dictate whether that support holds, or whether it gives way. A soft inflation result is likely to see the AUD under renewed pressure. There are however broad concerns about European growth and recent data has done little to allay those. It seems likely that the Euro itself could easily see periods of increased selling pressure over the coming weeks.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) immediately tracked lower off the weekly open to 0.6320 (1.5830) against the Euro (EUR) but has reversed losses Wednesday after support for the Euro diminished as risk tone shifted supporting commodity currencies. Price sits currently at 0.6360 (1.5720) which is 5 clicks away from the yearly high. Thursday’s Aussie employment data holds the attention of investors tomorrow, the RBA are hoping for a release around a 15,000 increase to the workforce.

The Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) remains choppy with the EUR pushing the cross to 0.6310 (1.5850) early Monday. With the RBA shifting its stance to a more neutral outlook, the RBA stopped short of calling for a rate cut in the next central bank meeting and surprisingly the RBA look more balanced now than other central banks which has boosted the Aussie. Data last week in Australian was also positive, US/China trade talks have helped to support the AUD. We are picking a retest of last week’s high of 0.6365 (1.5712). Transferring your AUD into EUR provides attractive levels now with the pair trading at the top of the current band

Worse than expected German industrial production and manufacturing data overnight hampered Euro EUR) efforts to extend past 0.6300 (1.5880) against the Australian Dollar (AUD) pushing the cross to 0.6345 (1.5760). Although the RBA statement was dovish earlier in the week (cash rate unchanged at 1.50%) Retail Sales and Trade Balance has boosted the Aussie close to the yearly high of 0.6370 (1.5700) we saw earlier in the week during choppy price action during the RBA announcement. Next week the main focus will be on the ECB refinancing rate and statement, we expect the ECB to keep with the recent dovish theme although the ECB is forecasting a recovery of sorts in the second quarter 2019.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has continued last week’s momentum against the Euro (EUR) surging to 0.6350 (1.5750) a fresh six- week high. 0.6362 (1.5717) is the yearly high from late February as the Aussie looks poised to break this significant resistance level. We could certainly get close this week if tomorrow’s RBA is even a little positive. The RBA signalled only recently they were neutral saying a cut was as good a chance as a hike but with poor recent data (excluding employment) we could see a dovish bias with a rate cut as early as August. Weakness in Eurozone Manufacturing has taken its toll on economic weakness cementing the ECB’s dovish stance and low inflation.

Australian jobs numbers took the Australian Dollar (AUD) higher mid last week against the Euro (EUR) to 0.6295 (1.5885) before the Euro regained some losses with the cross closing the week at 0.6265 (1.5960). Eurozone manufacturing was a let down with France and German figures producing softer than forecast readings- the lowest since 2012 and the pressure squarely back onto the Euro.

A small number of jobs (4,600) were added to the workforce, a little light on expectations, but it was the unemployment rate markets focused on coming in at 4.9% from 5.0% which pushed investors away from the EUR with price retracing to 0.6270 (1.5950).

RBA Monetary policy minutes from the 5th March meeting release today and should highlight the earlier spiel from governor Lowe of signs the economy is struggling but unemployment will continue to edge lower to 4.75%. We will see if this happens Thursday when the jobs data releases and the unemployment rate. Later in the week German and French manufacturing figures release. The Euro will be boosted by Brexit optimism this week if a deal can be agreed but more predominantly if Aussie jobs data comes in well we could see a retest of the 3 month high of 0.6350 (1.5740) develop.

Brexit has occupied headlines especially given we have had no significant data to report this week for the pair. Just Eurozone industrial data was solid benefiting the Euro.

Risk sentiment improved overnight Tuesday after hopes a last minute concession on Brexit from the EU would allow the UK parliament to vote into law a EU-UK deal. The Australian Dollar (AUD) improved to 0.6285 (1.5910) against the Euro (EUR) from the open of 0.6265 (1.5950) extending last week’s gains and looks to 0.6320 (1.5820) early February resistance levels.

It’s been a big week for the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair with both central bank overnight rate announcements. Price moved lower to 0.6200 (1.6120) after the RBA left rates unchanged at 1.50% with dovish comments surrounding inflation expectations weakening the Aussie. Wednesday’s quarterly GDP was also soft at 0.2% along with Retail Sales as well. A reversal back towards 0.6270 (1.5950) took place as volatility soured after the ECB meeting. The Central Bank left rates unchanged but slashed inflation and growth forecast for 2019 and 2020 turning markets to risk averse across the board. It’s hard to know where direction is now with both Australian and EU countries really starting to struggle. Wage growth remains key for Australia.

The Australian Dollar has surprisingly picked up a little momentum after yesterday’s terrible Building Approvals figures against the Euro (EUR) trading off the low of 0.6220 (1.6070) to 0.6280 (1.5980). Building approvals although slightly better than predicted are now down over 28% year on year which is extremely concerning. Soft Business operating profits also put pressure on the Aussie pointing to further downside risks in the currency heading into today’s RBA cash rate announcement. No change is expected from the 1.50% for now but comments by Lowe will be interesting. Later in the week we also have the (ECB) European Central Bank cash rate announcement which will remain at 0.0% as they have nowhere to go, comments will more than likely be dovish based on recent data indicating the economy in the region is slowing.

The Aussie rallied for a hour on the news before Aussie dollar bears returned taking price to 0.6234 (1.6040).

The Australian Dollar (AUD) reversed off last week’s low of 0.6240 (1.6020) to regain most of its losses travelling to 0.6320 (1.5820) Tuesday. Lowe made comment that it was unlikely rates would go up this year as the RBA needed a lift to inflation. He didn’t rule out the possibility of raising the cash rate next year but would be concerned if inflation stayed below the 2-3% band. News of a total ban on Australia coal into China was also quashed by Chinese customs officials, this bought buyers back into AUD. German CPI pints at the end of the week. We expect risk currencies such as the AUD to dominate while the global mood around China/US trade remains positive.

In the past 24 hours of trading in the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair we have seen huge downward pressure develop in the Aussie. Price has dropped from 0.6350 (1.5750) to 0.6240 (1.6020). Aussie Jobs numbers released well up surprising markets, booting the AUD for a while until Westpac Bank decided they wanted to sell AUD and announced that they expect the RBA to cut the cash rate this year in August and November. This started to bring sellers to the market when the Aussie was hit hard again with news that the Chinese had placed a ban of Australian coal imports for 2019. The news particularly bad for the Australian economy as coal is Australia’s biggest export earner. A retest of 0.6120 (1.6350) the multi year low is in jeopardy.

The Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) remains choppy as ever. Last week was the Aussie Dollar’s turn to advance on the EUR with the pair travelling to 0.6330 (1.5800) where it closed. The Euro picked up some support Monday in thin US holiday trading reversing some losses back to 0.6305 (1.5860) This week is a busy one for the cross with French and German manufacturing data to release along with Aussie employment figures. We expect risk to continue this week with price action to return to the high of 0.6330 (1.5800). Friday RBA governor Lowe speaks again, if he continues to paint the Aussie economy in a negative light as has done recently we could see Aussie Dollar weakness.

Overnight German quarterly GDP printed at 0.0% from 0.1% markets were predicting narrowly avoiding a recession as German companies struggle with a weakening global economy based on Trump’s trade dispute with China. A recession is deemed two negative GDP quarters in a row. Germany the biggest country in the Eurozone reported no growth in the last quarter on 2018.

Last week’s hangover from several separate RBA dovish comments could continue to weigh on the Australian Dollar (AUD). The Euro (EUR) already looks to push higher against the under pressure Aussie to 0.6250 (1.6000) Certainly German prelim fourth quarter GDP will help if this comes in positive above 0.1%. Third quarter 2018 was poor with expenditure of households declining. Later in the week assistant RBA governor Kent speaks.

Risk currencies took a hit overnight with equity markets coming off large- the Nasdaq is down over 1.5% on the day and the Australian Dollar has tanked across the board this week on general weakness making things worse. Against the Euro (EUR) we have seen price reverse from earlier week moves from 0.6360 (1.5730) to 0.6250 (1.6000) Softer German factory orders should have put pressure on the EUR but hasn’t after figures reported a decline of -0.4% when 0.8% growth was expected. This highlights the pressure the Aussie has on it and will continue have on it as long as the US/China trade situation remains unsolved.

Last week’s shock sales forecast by Apple sent markets into a flurry of activity with the Euro (EUR) extending its pre late 2018 rally into 2019 against the Australian Dollar (AUD) with price travelling to 0.5950 (1.6800). Price retraced back to 0.6110 (1.6370) just as quick with the Aussie back in favour after positive rhetoric from Fed reserve Powell. With Trump speaking later today at the Southern Border on the government shutdown and his wall build we could witness the first non-war related “state of emergency” in the US government which could send investors back buying safe haven assets.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has remained under pressure this week against the Euro (EUR) with price moving lower to 0.6195 (1.6140) a 10 October low. The Aussie has broadly underperformed after employment data showed an increase in the number of unemployed to 5.1% from 5.0%. Risk associated currencies are all dropping with news the US and 12 other countries are accusing China for ongoing efforts to steal other countries trade secrets and advanced technologies. Criminal charges from the US Justice Department are expected to begin soon with countries including Great Britain, Australia, Canada, Japan and Germany all supportive. US Equities have fallen away sharply to nearly 2.0% on the day as the NY session comes to a close. The Italians have avoided sanctions after reaching a 2019 budget agreement. The compromise is to lower 2019 GDP to 2.04%. This has been achieved without making dramatic changes to key budget proposals.

We have seen some choppy price action for the Australian dollar / Euro cross rate (AUD/EUR) over the past week. Both currencies have seen periods of pressure, but ultimately it’s the AUD that has underperformed. Soft Chinese data late last week weighed on the AUD and it’s help drive the pair to a low of 0.6320 (1.5822), after touching highs of 0.6380 (1.5673) earlier in the week. The EUR has also struggled, pressured by a dovish ECB statement and further confirmation that the Eurozone economy is slowing down.  Further volatility is likely in the coming days, with key Australian employment data set for release on Thursday. That data may well set the tone for the AUD over the Christmas period

As we suggested the Euro (EUR) retraced higher against the Australian Dollar (AUD) back to 0.6390 (1.5650) Friday, from the fibonacci retracement level of 0.6300 (1.5880). German economic sentiment published up at -17.5 against the expected -25.0 showing a rise in economic expectations was welcomed amid a worsening economic situation for Germany and the EU. Draghi’s ECB kept the benchmark rate unchanged overnight at 0.0%. The central bank expect the rate to remain unchanged through to the winter of 2019. Draghi said they would formally bring an end to the bond buying program at the end of this month despite concerns of an economic slowdown. Where to from here for the pair is a tough one to gauge, we expect a possible retest of 0.6540 (1.5300).

While the Australian Dollar (AUD) has been wrestling with risk off flows last week poor data has also contributed to its demise against the Euro (EUR). The pair was back at the five week low of 0.6290 (1.5900) Friday retracing weeks of gains. RBA’ Kent said the next policy shift would more than likely be a rate hike but some time away with global pressures likely to hinder the Aussie for some time yet. The move to 0.6300 (1.5870) is a 50% retracement of a larger move suggesting a pull back towards 0.6450 (1.5500) is coming.

Economic news has been poor this week for the Australian Dollar (AUD). Against the Euro (EUR) we have seen a sharp bounce lower from the recent high of 0.6515 (1.5350) Monday to travel back to 0.6340 (1.5770) as Aussie has been sold across the board. Aussie quarterly GDP printed much lower than markets were expecting at 0.3% based on predictions of 0.6% showing the Australian economy slowed sharply over the last quarter. The RBA has left the cash rate unchanged as widely expected siting a slowdown in global trade stemming from ongoing trade tensions, confirming the rate would remain at 1.50% for some time. Next week the ECB will announce their cash rate as unchanged from the 0.0% and reiterate concerns of a slowdown in the Eurozone. Resistance at 1.5900 could be tested over the next week before further topside momentum continues for the Aussie.

It’s one way traffic with the Australian Dollar (AUD) extending its hold over the Euro (EUR) after risk associated products received a boost of confidence over the weekend, the pair travelling to 0.6520 (1.5340) as Trump and China agree on a trade tariff truce. The Italian Budget still weighs heavily on the Euro with threats of large fines still threatening to derail the Italian economy if an agreement is not met to resolve the massive budget deficit of 2.4B over 2019. The Italians could still face disciplinary action by the EU if the deficit forecast is not reduced significantly. Key interest this week is with today’s RBA cash announcement which is widely expected to remain unchanged at 1.50% for the 28th consecutive month. We have seen no hikes since November 2010 with the RBA signalling they are not likely to change for some time. Watch for Aussie Retail Sales later in the week as the release has scope to shift price if it doesn’t print at the expected 0.3%

Italian budget concerns are still weighing on the EUR. If the Italians are unable to resolve differences and remain defiant in retaining their budget at or around 2.4B the EU could step in as early as December 20th to instigate disciplinary action for breaking the EU fiscal rules. If this happens, we will see a significantly weaker EUR. The next level of interest for the Aussie is the long term resistance level of 0.6570 (1.5220).

The Euro (EUR) traded lower off the weekly open to 0.6400 (1.5630) levels against the Australian Dollar (AUD) but the Aussie gave back its gains during Monday’s overnight sessions trading back to 0.6380 (1.5680) as markets turned risk off. Mario Draghi spoke on the Monetary affairs of the European Parliament and said… “prevailing uncertainties still call for patience, prudence and persistence in calibrating our monetary policy stance. Significant monetary policy stimulus is still needed to support the further build-up of domestic price pressures and headline inflation developments over the medium term. To ensure that inflation continues to move towards our aim in a sustained manner, a significant degree of monetary policy stimulus will be maintained, even after the end of net asset purchases.” Direction this week will be largely governed by the Italian Budget standoff, we expect the pair to retest the high of 0.6450 (1.5510) this week.

Surprisingly the Euro has held up well against the greenback but showed no contest with ongoing Italian Budget dramas vs the AUD.

Italian Budget issues have kept the Euro against the wall, this week is no different. Italy have until the end of today (Tuesday) to present their revised Budget proposal to the EU. Italy’s Picchi remains defiant, with massive fines laid out this doesn’t seem to bother him. Further declines are expected in the EUR with resistance at 0.6410 (1.5600). This level looks like a done deal with a possibility of extending the Aussie rally all the way back to June 2018 levels of 0.6535 (1.5300) unless we see positive EU data.

The AUD/EUR is now trading close to weekly lows at 0.6143 (1.6278) and we look for further moves towards the 0.6100 (1.6395) support level early next week.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has started the week on a good footing against the Euro (EUR) pushing higher to 0.6250 (1.6010). Italy’s budget issues have spooked buyers of the EUR and may remain nervous until the final Italian budget is submitted on the 15th of October 2018. Today’s Australian RBA meeting shouldn’t throw up any surprises with the cash rate remaining at 1.5% and the same rhetoric discussed. The pair has broken past four week resistance Tuesday, the Aussie should continue to enjoy further support through to 0.6270 (1.5950)

Midweek saw a shift higher in the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair to 0.6200 (1.6150)   from the recent low of 0.6150 (1.6260) after support for the Euro sank. The pair is still hovering around the extremely low levels of December 2015, with a break below 0.6060 (1.6500) we are into territory my chart doesn’t go to – beyond 2013 price levels. On the upside 0.6230 (1.6050) is resistance, if prices are to breach here we would need to see a favourable outcome with Trump/China talks.

The more positive comments from ECB Head Draghi overnight saw the AUD retreat from the 0.6174 level to a low of 0.6157, it is now trading around 0.6173 and should hold around these levels until the Fed release on Thursday.

Better result for the AUD on this cross as it has tracked higher from the 0.6123 low at the start of the week , making a high of 0.6230 overnight…now at 0.6185 the AUD should hold current levels helped by the return to risk and better base metal prices…risk is weighed to EUR on geopolitical concerns and we look for further a move back to the 0.6230/50 level early next week.

On way traffic continues to be the theme with the Australian Dollar (AUD) Euro (EUR) pair, trading just off last week’s low of 0.6115 (1.6350) at 0.6150 (1.6270) Tuesday this is a continuation of the bearish long term move from 0.6560 (1.5300) of June this year. Today’s RBA August monetary minutes will be key to gauge further direction with Eurozone manufacturing numbers to print later in the week. With a mixed bag of manufacturing results out of Germany and Spain late August these results will be pivotal.

It’s been a choppy week for the Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR) pair bouncing from a low of 0.6120 (1.6350) to 0.6200 (1.6140) in volatile conditions. The Euro has made inroads during Thursdays overnight sessions pushing the cross down to 0.6150 (1.6250) after the ECB left their benchmark rate unchanged. The long term view is further EUR strength with the bearish channel dominating since early August from the high of 0.6410 (1.5600) President Trump’s ongoing trade war discussions are having a negative effect on the Aussie Dollar (AUD) based on the trade tariffs imposed on China and the detrimental impact on the Australian economy’s ability to export to China.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) still looks very vulnerable to further downside against the Euro (EUR). Monday has seen the continuation of the huge bearish trend from June 2018 price of 0.6550 (1.5270) surge lower through key – monumental prior support of 0.6150 (1.6250) – August 2015 levels to register 0.6135 (1.6300) Tuesday. The Euro received a friendly boost during the Monday overnight sessions after news broke of a possible November (stage 1) brexit agreement. Adding to Aussie woes is the ongoing trade war saga which threatens to go for months as President Trump negotiates agreements with Canada, Japan and China. As long as markets remain spooked by taking on risk currencies such as the Australian Dollar it will continue to ease lower- it’s that simple.

The AUDEUR has been in a significant down trend since mid-August and that continued this week with the pair trading to fresh cycle lows of 0.6165. This came despite better than forecast Australian GDP data that hit the wires on Wednesday. There are however signs that the downtrend is losing momentum and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a significant recovery over the coming week or two. Those looking to purchase Australian dollars (AUD) with Euro (EUR) should take advantage of the current level, or any potential further weakness, as we don’t believe it will be sustained.

It has been one-way traffic to the downside for this pair for much of the past two weeks. Back on the 20th of August the AUDEUR traded at 0.6409, but after relentless pressure the cross touched a low of 0.6184 yesterday. That’s just shy of the 0.6177 low set back in March of this year. The selling is starting to look a little overdone, but any recovery is going to be in the hands of the RBA with their rate statement set for release this afternoon. The central bank could easily spark a small AUD short squeeze if they maintain a relatively neutral tone, but only time will tell. As long as the pair remains above 0.6177 then we will continue to look for a corrective recovery. Any break below 0.6177 however would be a negative signal and likely encourage further selling.

Worse than expected Australian data has diminished any chances of an AUD recovery this week with worse than market expectations printing for Building Approvals and Capital Expenditure sent the Aussie Dollar (AUD) down to a record level of 0.6220 (1.6075). Starting the week at 0.6300 (1.5880) the Aussie was under immediate pressure losing over 80 points to midday Friday.

The Euro (EUR) has had a massive week posting large gains against the weakened Australian Dollar (AUD) Coming off initial early week prices of around 0.6400 (1.5630) the pair has travelled to 0.6280 (1.5920) Friday pushing aside previous hard support of 0.6300 (1.5890) with ease. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will be glad when this week is over after facing multiple leadership challenges from Peter Dutton and down the chain Bishop and Robertson. This behavior is fairly common in Australian Political law as we have seen before. A light economic calendar is in store next week for the pair with Australian private Expenditure to print- most price movement will be made up from Australian Politics.

Lowe will give the minutes of the recent RBA meeting today at 1.30pm and is expected to give an upbeat tone on future inflation prospects.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has given back last week’s gains against the Euro (EUR), after starting the week at 0.6400 (1.5620) the EUR rallied to 0.6375 (1.5690) Last week reports showed that the EU bank exposure to Turkey rattled the EUR but it has bounced back. Key Aussie data will play out Wednesday with wage price Index and Thursday’s unemployment data, but we also have German economic sentiment to be wary of with numbers from July printing below market expectations and weakening the Euro.

With major political developments across the financial plane both domestic data in the two countries has made any real impact on the cross.

Choppy markets this week has seen the Euro (EUR) and Australian Dollar (AUD) trade between a range of 0.6370 (1.5700) and 0.6300 (1.5880) as it has done since mid June. Draghi delivered a confident assessment of the Eurozone expected recovery last night and left rates unchanged sticking to his plan laid out in June to unwind the asset purchasing program until the end of the year. As we know he reiterated there would be no lifting of rates until June 2019. Once we see a breakout of the current range we should see the pair head back to 0.6185 (1.6170) in the medium term.

Investors choosing to broadly stay out of deemed risk currencies such as the Australian Dollar (AUD) with further deterioration in risk “sentiment” as the US-China trade war deepens. With last week’s Manufacturing and Services numbers publishing well we will need further indication that these were not just blips in the EUR recovery program.

A long term lack of support for the EUR has come to an end this week with the EUR starting to recoup earlier losses against the Australian Dollar (AUD). The Euro has been on the back foot since 0.6200 (1.6150) the late April low but has broken from this decline trading through 0.6470 (1.5450) midweek from the high of 0.6550 (1.5270).  Hawkish comments were said around the inflation outlook boosting predictions for a positive ECB meeting next week. We still see uncertainty on the horizon in Spain and Italy and predict prices to reflect a possible weaker EUR looking ahead back retesting 0.6580 (1.5200)

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has continued its push higher against the struggling EURO (EUR) with the pair reaching 0.6500 (1.5370) as the EURO was flogged. The Italian election has weighed on the currency as uncertainty increases. A snap election is now on the cards. If Italian were to cast a vote against the EU at fresh elections this would bring to the table the bloc’s biggest challenge. Italy is the third largest economy and heavily in debt which represents a potential threat to the EUR than the Greek economic crisis. The EUR should extend its five week fall lower over the coming days with resistance seen at 0.6570 (1.5220).

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has continued to push the EURO (EUR) lower currently sitting at fresh highs of around 0.6470 (1.5450). The 1st of February 2018 was the last time this level was achieved. With geopolitical issues this week we have seen risk turn on a dime and spook markets, equities have been up and down several times over the week creating difficult trading conditions for investors. RBA governor Lowe spoke Wednesday night and highlighted debt risks facing China since the GFC of 2008 and how they could impact on the Australian economy given the strong trading relationships the two countries have. I wouldn’t bet against the Aussie continuing its momentum to retest 0.6550 (1.5260)

The Australian dollar (AUD) has suffered against the Euro (EUR) this week trading to a low last night of 0.6227. The move is a continuation of the declines that started in the wake of last week’s soft Australian employment numbers. Since then the AUD has underperformed most other currencies in the face of broad based USD strength. Today’s Australian inflation data will be key to near term direction, but with the current bearish trend firmly entrenched, it would take a surprisingly strong result to turn the market around. If we get a soft inflation figure, the 2018 low of 0.6177 will be a target.

The AUD slid lower yesterday after the lower than expected CPI data dropping from 0.6531 to 0.6484 where it is currently trading. Eurozone data continues to be supportive of the EUR but with the RBA rate meeting next week, current ranges should hold until next Tuesday.

A better performance by the AUD on this cross as the AUD has held better levels in the face of a USD rally. Now around 0.6538 could see a push back over 0.6550 if tomorrows Australian CPI figure is above expectations. EUR data also this week for GDP and inflation also has potential to move direction.  We favour the EUR on this AUD/EUR cross.

It is now back around the 0.6477 level but after ECB head Draghi’s comments on EUR interest rates remaining unchanged for most of this year we favour more downside for the Aussie over the short term…look for consolidation at current levels heading into next week’s CPI data mid-week.

We have seen some choppy price action for the AUD/EUR pair over the past week or so, but with little overall direction. Dips toward the 0.6480 area are finding solid support while topside gains have been limited to the 0.6535 area. The Euro has been supported by decent economic data, while the AUD has been helped by broadly stronger commodities. Ultimately, we suspect the pair will break higher, but for now it seem content to bounce around the 0.6500 level. As such we favour buying into dips over the coming week.

There has been little overall direction in this pair for much of the past week. Prices continue to range around the 0.6390 area and this is likely to continue as we await the ECB rate meeting later in the week. Longer term we favour the Euro (EUR) as improving economic fundamentals should support the single currency. But looking shorter term, Australian employment data on Thursday could easily provide a temporary boost for the Australian dollar (AUD).

The Euro staged a decent recovery against the Australian dollar in the second half of last week. The pair had previously traded to a high of 0.6929 (low of 1.4433), but by the end of the week a resurgent EUR had driven the cross back to support around 0.6770 (resistance around 1.4771). The market currently trades around 0.6810 (1.4684) as it awaits the key data release of the week in tomorrow Australian inflation figure.

For much of the week the Australian dollar significantly outperformed the Euro, driving the pair to highs of 0.6929 (lows of 1.4433) yesterday afternoon. That high was made in the immediate aftermath of the strong Australian employment report, but since then the EUR has managed to claw back some the lost ground to the AUD. The trigger for the EUR recovery was last night’s ECB meeting where, despite his best attempts, President Draghi couldn’t stop the Euro from reacting to the improving economic outlook. Immediate support comes in around 0.6825 and as long as the market holds above that level, the focus remains on the topside and further gains. A break below that support level however, may well signal a much bigger correct lower is developing.

The Australian dollar was one of the best performing currencies last week and as such its gains against the Euro should be no major surprise. That being said, gains for the pair stalled at the 0.6840 level which marks the high from back on 20th June. After two failed attempts at that level we have seen the cross drift a touch lower overnight to now trade at 0.6790. This week should be a big one with plenty of potential volatility. From Australia we have the RBA minutes this afternoon the employment data on Thursday. While from Europe we have the ECB meeting on Thursday night to digest.
