AUD/JPY: 1-hour

I spy with my eye a possible breakout in the making! As you can see, AUD/JPY is trading on what looks like a symmetrical triangle on the 1-hour time frame.

What makes the setup interesting is that the pair is currently knocking on the 88.00 handle, which lines up with a previous support level AND the 100 SMA on the chart.

A bounce from the trend line could drag the pair to its previous lows near 87.50 before it sees either a support bounce or a breakout. Meanwhile, a break above the 88.00 area could push the pair to the 88.50 or even 89.00 areas of interest.

CAD/CHF: 4-hour

Trend traders huddle up! CAD/CHF is finding support at the .7750 psychological area, which isn’t surprising since the level also lines up with a rising channel support AND the 200 SMA on the 4-hour time frame.

Will we see a Loonie bounce this week? Buying at current levels could give you a sweet reward-to-risk ratio especially if you aim for the previous highs near .7900.

Just make sure you place wide stops on currency crosses like these, aight?
