Let’s start the day with this beautiful range on NZD/USD! See, the pair looks like it’s about to break above the mid-range resistance. Will it translate to a trip to the .8700 area or will the bears step up and drag it back to the .8525 support? A straddle trade could work if you’re planning on day trading the Kiwi today.
I hope you’re up for a cross currency setup because this one is too good to miss! EUR/AUD is having trouble breaking below the 1.4800 psychological area, which is near the 200 SMA and former resistance zone on the daily chart. Not only that, but a bullish divergence might also be in the works! A stop just below the SMA could get you a good risk ratio if you think that the euro is about to bounce higher.
Last one up for today is USD/CHF’s sweet retracement setup. The pair has formed an evening star-like pattern right smack at a 50% Fib retracement level on the daily chart. What makes this setup more interesting is that it has also bounced from a 100 SMA retest and Stochastic is sitting in the overbought territory. A stop just above the 100 SMA is a good idea if you think that the Greenback is in for more losses.
