EUR/GBP: 4-hour

EUR/GBP 4-hour Chart

Look at that! EUR/GBP’s downtrend still seems to be very much intact as the long-term falling trend line has been holding steadily on the 4-hour chart. After that sharp decline from the .8100 handle, EUR/GBP pulled up for some air. If price heads back to test the falling trend line, the bears could jump in again and force the pair to resume its downtrend!

AUD/CAD: 4-hour

AUD/CAD 4-hour Chart

While the major currency pairs have been strongly trending, AUD/CAD has been ranging heavily. It has been bouncing around a horizontal channel with resistance at 1.0100 and support at parity. If you’re looking to range trade this pair, then wait for price to retest the upper and lower boundaries before attempting to jump in!

AUD/USD: Weekly

AUD/USD 4-hour Chart

For those who just love trading those long-term reversals, then I’ve got something for you too… As you can see, the price action on the AUD/USD weekly chart is showing a very clear bullish divergence. It is also sitting at a major support level. Taken together, the signals seem to indicate that the pair could bounce soon. I’m not saying price will undoubtedly reverse though, but given these signals, it might be a good idea to keep a close eye on the pair!

Before you get carried away with all these chart patterns, remember that technical analysis is only half the story.

To get the complete picture and avoid getting blindsided by economic data, you also have to do your fundamental analysis.
