Are you all psyched for this year’s last trading quarter? I know I am! Check out what I saw in AUD/USD, USD/CAD, and NZD/USD charts and see if you can make pips from them!
Potential Trade Setups
AUD/USD: Mid-Channel Resistance?
Here’s one for the trend surfers out there! AUD/USD just bounced up from the bottom of a descending channel and it looks like Stochastic is gearing up for an upward move. Will the pair encounter a mid-channel resistance at 1.0400 or will go all the way to 1.0450? See the setup
USD/CAD: 0.9850 is Soooo Strong!
Ha! It’s no wonder my USD/CAD trade isn’t moving. The .9850 handle is waaaay to strong for the Loonie bears right now! Not only is it the 38.2% Fib on the daily chart, but it’s also a former support level. Oh and have I mentioned that there’s a bearish divergence too? See the setup
NZD/USD: 150-Pip Range Opportunity
If you’ve been watching the comdolls as close as I have, then you should know that NZD/USD has been on a 150-pip range since early September. With Stochastic nearly in the oversold region though, the Kiwi bulls may soon target the .8350 range resistance. What do you think? See the setup
Comdoll Event Highlights for October 1-5, 2012
Earlier today, China released a couple of manufacturing PMIs which revealed that the contraction in their manufacturing industry is still ongoing. This could weigh on the Australian dollar for the next few days unless the economic events from Australia turn out better than expected. Make sure you keep close tabs on the RBA rate decision tomorrow and the Australian retail sales due Thursday.
Canada is also set to print high-impact data towards the latter half of the week as the Ivey PMI is scheduled for release on Thursday while the Canadian jobs reports are due Friday. Along with this, the U.S. will print its September NFP figure, which could show a slight rebound over the dismal August NFP report.
Let’s check the major weekly inflection points to see if we can spot trade setups that would complement our comdoll events!
