Investing.com - Market watchers will be turning their attention to inflation and trade after last week’s update on monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, while earnings are set to slow down after a hectic week of tech earnings last week.
The economic calendar for the current week remained relatively quiet with a couple of monetary policy decisions from Reserve Bank of Australia and Bank of England.
On many instruments, last week ended with interesting trading signals, mostly thanks to the Thursday’s flash crash on Yen. In today’s piece, we will focus on the EURAUD, which is having a very interesting setup, especially for the retail traders, like this one, is the counter trend trading opportunity. It is a beautiful shooting star, with a very long head.
While three-week long descending trend-line continue restricting AUDUSD’s near-term upside, the pair has to close beneath 0.7020 in order to please sellers with fresh lows. In doing so, the quote can drop to 0.7000 round-figure and then to the 0.6930-25 support-zone ahead of aiming 61.8% FE level of 0.6900. Alternatively, the 0.7085 is likely immediate resistances for the pair prior to confronting the 0.7115 TL barrier, breaking which 0.7160 and 50-day SMA level of 0.7190 may come back on the chart. Moreover, pair’s sustained trading beyond 0.7190 could flash 0.7235-40 and the 0. ...
While inability to sustain 200-day SMA dragged NZDUSD to five-week low, 50-day SMA & short-term ascending support-line presently restricts the pair’s further downside around 0.6730-20. Should the pair registers a daily closing beneath the 0.6720, the 0.6700 and 100-day SMA level of 0.6665 might entertain sellers before pleasing them with 0.6600 mark. On the contrary, 0.6820 and the 0.6835, comprising 200-day SMA, seem nearby resistances for the pair to clear, breaking which the 0.6850, the 0.6880 and the 0.6900 can play their roles. However, the 0.6965-75 and the 0. ...
AUD starts this week on the back foot. From the technical point of view, the drop is supported by the Head and Shoulders formation and by the breakout of the lower line of the symmetric triangle pattern. Some may see an additional Head and Shoulders pattern, which only adds to the bearish sentiment here.
This pair has recently been following the technical protocol with great accuracy, so it provides us with a very interesting occasion. Price action principles have been dominant here over the past few months. It all started with the Head & Shoulders pattern during the summer.
Considering AUDUSD’s dip beneath a month-old ascending trend-line, the pair is likely to visit the 0.7180 support but the 0.7150 horizontal-stop could confine its further downside. In case there prevails additional weakness on the part of the pair past-0.7150, the 0.7120 and the 0.7050 seem crucial rest-points to watch as break of which highlights the 0.7020 and the 0.7000 come-back. On the upside, the 0.7240 and the 0.7260 can restrict the pair’s near-term advances ahead of fueling it to 0.7275-80 region. Moreover, successful break of 0.7280 may escalate the recovery to the 0. ...
All setups from the yesterday’s Trading Sniper video were spot on. EURNZD also went down breaking the lower line of the rectangle pattern. AUDNZD broke the lower line of the symmetric triangle pattern.
The NZDUSD pair is now trading in the bearish channel, but it looks ready to breach above the upper line. The first target for the long position could be at 0.67, although the pair will probably fight a bit at the 100-day moving average.
It’s early to talk about the strengthening of the AUD because up to now, there are no crucial fundamental factors that may become drivers for the Australian currency. Let’s go through all the factors that can be a market mover for the Australian Dollar.
Last week, DAX broke the long-term neckline of the major head and shoulders pattern. This week starts with a pull-back, which is nothing surprising as this is a typical price action movement. Any bearish price action there will give us a legitimate signal to go short.
