For those who are waiting for USD/CHF's 4-hour symmetrical triangle to break, you could take clues from the daily chart. The pair is near the .9700 major psychological handle, which has served as a strong support and resistance level for the past couple of weeks. Will the former support hold again this time? Stochastic isn't giving us clues as it's on middle ground, so you gotta be careful in taking sides on this one!
Next up for today is a possible rising wedge action for EUR/JPY swing traders. The euro bulls are struggling with the 98.00 major psychological resistance on the 4-hour chart and the overbought Stochastic signal isn't helping either. You could aim for the 97.00 handle if you're planning to short the euro, but you could also wait for the pair to hit the rising trend line if you think that the euro rally still has legs in it.
Last but not the least is this sweet rising channel setup that I spotted on EUR/AUD's 4-hour chart. The pair is right smack in the middle of the channel, which is a good place as any to pick a direction for the pair. Will it drop to the 1.1700 level, or will it shoot up to the 1.1850 area? Hope you have fun trading this one!
