Breakout alert! AUD/JPY has been trading inside an ascending triangle pattern on its 1-hour forex chart, still deciding which direction to go. A move past the 93.00 major psychological resistance could mean that price is headed further north, possibly by around 150 pips, which is the same height as the chart pattern. Similarly, a downside break below the triangle support around 92.75 could spark a 150-pip selloff. Stochastic is moving up, hinting that an upside break is might be more likely.

AUD/CAD: 1-hour

If you’d rather play the ranges, then you might like this setup on AUD/CAD’s 1-hour forex chart a little better. The pair has been bouncing back and forth between support at the .9700 major psychological level and resistance near the .9800 mark, and has just tested the top of the range. A move towards the bottom seems to be underway, as stochastic is also moving lower. If you’re an Aussie bull, you could wait for price to form reversal candlesticks at the bottom of the range and for stochastic to move up from the oversold region before going long.
