Here’s a quick update on the AUD/USD retracement play on the pair’s 4-hour forex time frame! Price has just bounced off the rising trend line and the 200 SMA, as it also found support at the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. Stochastic is still moving higher, suggesting that Aussie bulls are in control at the moment. A strong rally could take AUD/USD up to its previous month highs near the .9500 major psychological resistance, but a small pullback might take place once stochastic turns from the overbought area.

Are you a fan of range setups? If so, then you should keep your eyes glued to NZD/USD’s 4-hour forex chart. The pair is already approaching a key resistance level right around the .8700 major psychological mark. At the same time, stochastic is moving in the overbought zone, ready to head lower. If .8700 holds as a ceiling for the price rallies, the pair could soon find itself moving towards the bottom of the range, which is just above the .8500 major psychological support.

CAD/JPY: 1-hour

If shorter-term plays are your thing, then this one’s just for you! On its 1-hour forex chart, CAD/JPY has just formed a double top pattern, which is a classic forex reversal signal. The pair is still testing the neckline at the moment but a breakdown could mean a 50-pip drop, which is the same height as the chart pattern. Be careful since stochastic is already in the oversold zone, indicating that a bounce might take place sooner or later.
