AUD/USD: 4-hour

Aussie bears, be careful! AUD/USD is currently testing its yearly lows around the .8950 minor psychological support level while stochastic is making its way out of the oversold region. This suggests that a bounce might be in the cards, but who knows how long that will last? If selling pressure remains strong, the pair might still have a chance at making new lows. Didn’t RBA Governor Stevens say he wanted AUD/USD to trade around .8500?

AUD/JPY: 4-hour

Here’s another potential bounce for the Aussie. AUD/JPY has been trading inside a falling channel for the past few months and it seems that the bottom of the range might hold as support once again. I’m seeing a bullish divergence on the 4-hour time frame, as the pair has made higher lows while stochastic drew lower lows. A rally could take the pair back to the top of the channel around the 93.50 minor psychological resistance.

GBP/AUD: 1-hour

If you can’t get enough of trend channels, then here’s another one just for you! On its 1-hour time frame, GBP/AUD is moving inside an ascending channel and is getting ready to test the bottom around the .8100 handle. A bounce from that area could push the pair back to the top of the channel near the .8400 mark. Do you think the trend will be your friend?

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

    AUDUSD is now strongly bearish and if I wanted to join that trend, I would wait for a potential pullback to the pivotal 0.9144 area. That would be a sweet spot for bears

    Am i getting this wrong or is the Divergence shown on Aud/jpy a hidden (bearish) Divergence which hints to a trend continuation (which is slightly downward) ???

    • Jougasaki

      No its a hidden bullish, but i think its played out allready in that example.

      • Booty

        Right, i was confused by the fact, that a hidden bullish divergence usualy happens in an uptrend, which isn´t the fact here…
        Thanks…
