EUR/AUD – Range trading defined!

Hello, fellows, for our today’s article I have decided to share some insight not on a major pair but the heavy volatile EUR/AUD cross. The pair provides strong trading opportunity and probably one of the best defined big-time frame ranges around the FX.

From a technical point of view, the price is locked between the resistance at 1.5870 and the support at 1.3680. Moreover, there are strong patterns confirming that the bears are winning the fight and after hitting the upper range boundary a possible target in the next months will be the lower one.

Around the 1.5800/5900 levels, we spot very rapid depreciation of the single currency showed in a bearish price action monthly candle. Since the beginning of March, only for three days, we spot solid downfall confirming the downtrend. The price may find some support nearby the 1.4300 level but overall the target is 1.3670/13700 and with a stop loss above 1.5800 this opportunity provides 1 to 1.5 odds backed up with a solid technical signal on a big-time frame.

EUR/USD – bears are dominating the big picture!

Dear fellows, today I would like to provide you with a short article regarding the long-term perspective of the most traded currency pair – the EUR/USD cross. I have decided to provide an outlook based on a monthly basis chart. The reason behind my pick is very simple. The monthly chart incorporates all fundamental aspects for a particular pair purely by looking at its technical structure as it excludes the noise around some news releases.

We can easily spot that the pair has been in a rapid downtrend since it hit 1.4000 and the single currency found a media core support at 1.0470. A lot of people expected a strong rebound and 50% retrenchment up to 1.2400. However, this is not the case. What we see on the monthly chart is a tight range pattern locked between 1.0470 and 1.1725 which has already been confirmed as a major resistance zone.

Moreover, the price action is strongly supporting the bears as we spot on the monthly bars huge shadows pointing up. From a technical perspective, the range pattern is a trend continuation structure and the downtrend should be resumed if the prices break below 1.0450. The mid-term target is the level of parity which is very likely to be pushed as well opening the path towards the initial range pattern target – the support zone at 0.9500.
