First up is everyone's favorite pair, EUR/USD! The pair appears to be forming a rising wedge, as it has consistently been forming higher lows and higher highs while at the same time consolidating. If you ask me, this playa looks like its gonna breakout fellas, so y'all better be ready when it happens! Watch out for solid marubozu candles to form either above or below the support and resistance lines as signs that the wedge is breaking!
Next up lets zoom out a bit and take a look at the daily chart of the Swissy. USD/CHF is currently trading within a symmetrical triangle, and just bounced off the rising support line yesterday. With Stochastic now crossing out of oversold territory, look for the bulls to take over. For now, I suggest waiting for a daily candle close above or below the triangle as a sign that a breakout is in the cards.
Lastly, here's a counter-trend setup on GBP/USD. The pair has been on a meteoric rise the past 10 days, but could all that be coming to an end soon? Bearish divergence has formed and the pair appears to be stalling at the 1.6200 handle. It might be time to think about loading up on some short positions!
To get the complete picture and avoid getting blindsided by economic data, you also have to do your fundamental analysis.
