The Loonie is chillin’ like ice cream fillin’ on the 1-hour chart with USD/CAD bouncing between the .9950 and .9920 areas. With Stochastic on the oversold zone, placing a tight stop just below the bottom of the tight range is a pretty good way to catch some pips while we wait for more news from the major economies.
Pound bears huddle up! GBP/JPY looks like it’s having trouble getting past the 131.50 handle as the level is also near the top of a falling channel. Not only that, but Stochastic is on the oversold territory! If you’re planning to short this pair, a stop loss above the top of the channel could provide a good risk ratio, especially when you aim for the channel bottom.
Look at this sweet setup! EUR/USD just bounced from its 38.2% Fib on the 1-hour chart, which isn’t surprising since the level is also near a rising trend line support. With Stochastic just taking off from the oversold area, aiming for the previous high could work out. Just make sure you stick to your solid trading plans, aight?
