Posted on June 27, 2017 at 7:26 am GMT

EURUSD hit 1.1219, a near two-week high, in yesterday’s trading. Nevertheless, it failed a successful close above the 1.12 handle.

Posted on June 22, 2017 at 8:00 am GMT

NZDUSD maintains the uptrend that started from the May 11 low of 0.6816 to the June 14 high of 0.7318. The bias turned bullish after prices rose above the 200-day moving average at the key psychological level of 0.7100 in early June. However, after RSI reached overbought levels above 70, the oscillator slipped back down and NZDUSD is now consolidating just above the 0.7200 handle since peaking at 0.7318.
