AUD/USD: 4-hour

AUD/USD 4-Hour Chart

Slow and steady does it! AUD/USD is still crawling inside a rising channel on its 4-hour time frame as the pair tries to keep its uptrend intact. Right now, it’s hovering at the middle of the channel and seems to be headed for the bottom. Aussie bears could still push this pair down by 50 pips or so until the channel support around 1.0350. If you’re an Aussie bull though, you can wait for the pair to bounce from the bottom of the channel before jumping aboard the uptrend.

USD/JPY: 1-hour

If you’re a fan of break and retest plays, then here’s a setup you might like. USD/JPY just surged above the 82.00 major psychological handle last week, but the rally seems to be running out of steam. The pair could pull back to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, which is right in line with the former resistance level around 82.20. Stochastic is currently in the oversold zone though, as USD/JPY seems to be finding support at the 38.2% Fib level.

EUR/GBP: 4-hour

Stochastic is currently on middle ground, barely providing any clues on which way the pair could go. Don’t be shy to take a peek at our Chart Patterns Cheat Sheet if you plan to trade this pair!
