First up is a nice and simple trend trade on USD/CHF. The pair found support from the .9650 area, which lines up with a rising channel support on the 4-hour time frame. What’s more, stochastic is chillin’ like a villain in the oversold territory. Think the dollar is about to gain pips on the franc? A long trade at current levels could get you a good reward-to-risk ratio especially if you aim for the previous highs. Of course, you could also wait for a break below the channel support and trade a downside breakout if you’re one of them dollar bears.

Here’s another trend trade for ya! USD/CAD is having trouble breaking below the 1.3050 minor psychological handle, which coincidentally lines up with the 100 SMA support on the 4-hour chart. Not only that, but the setup is also sporting a slight bullish divergence! Will the Loonie lose more pips on the Greenback? Or will the comdoll bulls hustle some muscle and push for a downside break this week?

Last one for this batch of charts is a simple retracement trade on AUD/NZD. The pair is lollygagging at the 1.0550 area, a level that has served as support and resistance area in the past. This time around the MiPs is supported by not only a 50% Fib, but also the 200 SMA on the 4-hour time frame. Are we looking at a bounce in the making?
