Our Ducks Are in a Row as the Currencies Are Ready for Their Next Moves

By comparison to quite a few previous sessions, yesterdays one might seem uneventful. That was not the case however. The markets never sleep they offer plenty of insights, hinting at their next moves. Evaluating these, and the directions they point to, brings strong rewards. Were ready for the powerful opportunities identified. Lets go!

EUR/USD Resting at Resistance?

While EUR/USD closed yesterday above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, the upper border of the rising orange trend channel has again stopped the bulls. The resulting pullback took the pair below the retracement and at the moment of writing these words, the exchange rate trades right at it (at around 1.1390).

A more sizable correction will be more likely and reliable only once we see the pair close today, or in the coming days, below the retracement. Should we see such price action, well consider opening short positions.

USD/CHF Support Reached. Now What?


Both the above daily charts differ only in their starting point. Zooming out, we see that the breakdown below the rising green support line was followed by a unsuccessful comeback above it. Then, the pair has moved sharply lower, reaching the green support zone and also testing the 50% Fibonacci retracement in the process.

Coupled with the positioning of the daily indicators, the odds of a reversal and a bigger move to the upside in the very near future have risen. Should we see more bullish factors and signs emerge, well consider opening long positions.

AUD/USD Will the Bulls Fade Again?

In the last couple of sessions, we have seen AUD/USD eventually bounce off the previously-broken lower border of the declining red trend channel. The upswing took the pair to the declining brown resistance line (that is based on previous peaks) and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement.

Additionally, the Stochastic Oscillator has moved to its overbought area, suggesting that we could see a reversal in the near future. Should we see currency bulls failing to overcome this resistance convincingly and lastingly, well consider opening short positions.

Summing up the Alert, EUR/USD and AUD/USD currently trade at around an important resistance and should we see signs of the bulls weakness, well consider opening short positions. USD/CHF appears to have reached a support, and a reversal is in the air should we see more signs pointing in this direction, well consider opening long positions. There're no other opportunities worth acting upon in the currencies.
