Our first setup of the day is an easy peasy support play on EUR/USD. Not only is the pair headed for the 1.0820 resistance and support line, but the 100 SMA has also just crossed above the 200 SMA line on the 1-hour time frame. The cherry on top of the setup is an oversold signal from Stochastic. You could buy at the support area though it will probably be a better idea if you wait for a couple more candlesticks in case the euro isn’t done falling against the Greenback just yet.

AUD/USD: 1-hour

Here’s another support play for ya! AUD/USD is headed for the .7175 area, which is a support that has been holding since the start of the month. In addition, Stochastic looks like it’s about to hit the oversold territory. Will the support hold for another day? A long trade at the levels could get you decent pips if you think that the Aussie will head back to its previous highs. Of course, you could also wait for a downside breakout if you’re one of them Aussie bears or dollar bulls.

GBP/AUD: 4-hour

Last one up for today is a countertrend play on GBP/AUD. The pair is lollygagging just above the 2.0800 levels, which is right smack at the mid-channel line and Fib levels on the 4-hour chart. Not only that, but Stochastic is also sporting an oversold signal. A long trade at current levels could make for a good trade if you aim for the channel’s highs. Gotta make your stops wide though, as currency cross volatility is usually wonkier than the majors!
