First up is this sweet trend play on NZD/USD! The pair just bounced from a rising channel support near the 200 SMA levels. Not only that, but Stochastic has also just left the oversold territory. A stop just below the .8500 area could still get you a sweet reward-to-risk ratio if you believe that this comdoll will make new highs this month.

USD/CHF: 4-hour

If you’re not feelin’ the long USD/CHF setup that I pointed out yesterday, then you could check the lower time frames. On the 4-hour chart USD/CHF is having trouble breaking above the .8825 area, which is near the 38.2% Fib and former support levels. You could place your stop losses just above the Fibs if you’re one of them dollar bears, but you could also wait for a break above the resistance areas if you’d rather trade the 100 and 200 SMA crossover that’s usually taken as a bullish signal.

EUR/GBP: Daily

Last one up for today is a sweet counter trend play on EUR/GBP. The euro is back at the mid-channel support levels. This time though, the chart is also popping up a potential bullish divergence. Think the support will hold again? Read up on trading counter trend trades if you haven’t tried it yet!
