Which way will USD/CHF break out? There’s a huge symmetrical triangle on the pair’s daily chart as USD/CHF has been forming higher lows and lower highs. Stochastic is already crawling out of the overbought zone, suggesting that dollar bears could have the upper hand. But who knows if dollar bulls will suddenly take charge? Make sure you review how to trade breakouts and how to spot fakeouts if you plan to grab pips off this setup.
Here’s a setup that Happy Pip wouldn’t want to miss. Remember that NZD/USD range she pointed out last week? Well, it looks like the range is still holdin’ like a boss as the pair just bounced off support around .8125. On top of that, there’s a bullish divergence as the pair made lower lows while stochastic showed higher lows. If Kiwi bulls are strong enough, they could take the pair back to the resistance at .8250 or even until the previous high near .8300.

Last but not least, here’s one for my favorite monster, Cyclopip. He might like to keep his one eye fixed on this potential head and shoulders pattern forming on EUR/JPY as the pair appears to be pulling back to the area of interest at the 109.00 handle. Not only is that a nice juicy round number, it’s also closely in line with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level! Pretty cool, huh? If that level holds as resistance, EUR/JPY might find itself tumbling back down to support at 105.00.
