Short-term trading ideas FX AUD/USD - a lowering game: retreat from the upper boundary of the A-A channel

On the weekly chart, a doji and a bearish signal have formed on the Stochastic oscillator. On the daily chart, a double top has formed. Moreover, there is a bearish divergence on the AO and CCI indicators. In this idea, I'm envisaging a fall in the rate to the trend line at 0.7480 by the 27-29th of March 2017. If this fall gathers pace and the rate closes below the trend line, then we might see a slide to 0.7262. It would be prudent to rule out such a fall if the daily candle closes above 0.7790.

Short-term trading ideas FX EUR/GBP - a lowering game: awaiting polling data for French presidential candidates

On Friday, trading on the euro closed up. According to cycles, the rate should restore to around the 0.8600 mark. A CCI level of -100, as well as the intersection of the slow and fast lines on the Stochastic oscillator, should facilitate a strengthening of the euro against the pound. Polling data for the French presidential candidates remains the main driver for the single currency.

EUR/USD: François Bayrou has reduced political risks in Europe

Trading on the euro on Wednesday closed up. In the first half of the day, the euro fell against the dollar to 1.0494 on the back of a rise in premiums over political risks. A ricochet from the session minimum followed at 18:38 (GMT+3) after François Bayrou, leader of the "Democratic Movement" party, confirmed that he would not stand in France's presidential election, opting instead to throw his weight behind independent candidate Emmanuel Macron.
