Short-term trading idea FX AUD/NZD – trading sideways: cross in a narrowing formation

Trading opportunities on the currency pair: A pin bar has formed on the weekly timeframe. Given that the pair has long been trading within a certain range for a while, it might not work out. Pin bars often fail to fully form, so let’s keep an eye on the current bar.

Short-term trading idea FX EUR/USD – bear speculation: rebound from the upper boundary of the A-A channel

Trading opportunities for the currency pair: The price is trading around the upper boundaries of the A-A and C-C channels. On the monthly timeframe, there’s a risk of falling to 1.25, but the euro is expected to strengthen significantly from September onwards. In connection with this, the range from 1.1475 to 1.1595 will be used for selling euros, with targets of 1.12 and 1.0925. If, from September, the price continues to trade above 1.1290, it would be wise to close all short positions. In such a case, buyers will push the price to 1.25 to the upper boundary of the D-D channel. If we get a breakout of the C-C channel in July, it’s worth changing our target from 1.25 to 1.27.

Mid-term trading idea FX EUR/CAD – bear speculation: loonie to rise in anticipation of a rate hike from the BoC

Trading opportunities on the currency pair: On the expectation that the Bank of Canada will raise interest rates on the 12th of July, as well as the recovery in oil prices, I’m expecting the pair to fall to around 1.4340 – 1.4395. If the first half of my prediction works out, then we can set a target of 1.3880 for the 14th of October.

Short-term trading idea FX AUDCAD – bull speculation: price to restore to 1.0327

Trading opportunities for the currency pair: The price has twice rebounded from the S1 line. Because of this, the Aussie dollar is expected to strengthen against its Canadian counterpart as far as the TL1 line with targets of 1.0211 (high point from the 7th of June) and 1.0327. This scenario will not play out if the daily candlestick closes below 0.9948.

Short-term trading idea FX EURGBP – bull speculation: strengthening Euro with a jump to 0.8652 expected

Trading opportunities for the currency pair: A W-model has formed on the weekly timeframe. Keep an eye on 0.9083 level. Cycles suggest a slide to 0.8652 by 10/07/17, followed by growth to 0.9081 by 15/08/17.

Short-term trading idea FX AUD/USD - bear speculation: return to 0.7345

Trading opportunities on the currency pair: the price is currently trading in the middle of the range formed since April 2016. Large and small speculators alike are unsure what to do with the Aussie currency. Problems in China and a drop in raw assets prices have put pressure on the economy and the RBA remains in favour of reducing interest rates this year. Because of this, my first (and base) scenario has the price rising to 0.7605/10 followed by a return to the trend line at 0.7345.

Short-term trading idea FX NZD/USD - bear speculation: rebound from the upper boundary of the 1-1 channel

Trading opportunities for the currency pair: the last 4 weeks have seen the formation of a short-term bullish trend on this pair. There are no clear sell signals for the Kiwi dollar at this moment in time. A reversal model could form by the 22nd of June. Cycles point towards a slide for the exchange rate down to the TR2 trend line. As the upwards movement subsides, the target for downwards movement will be around 0.6938. If the weekly candlestick closes above 0.7376, this scenario will not play out.

Short-term trading idea FX EUR/AUD - bear speculation: expected breakout of the trend line

Trading opportunities on the currency pair: A doji has formed on the weekly chart. On Friday the 26th of May, trading closed with the formation of a reversal hammer. Between the price and the AC indicator, a double bearish divergence has formed. This increases the risk of a breakout of the TR3 trend line. I'm predicting some correctional movement towards the TR4 line at 1.4690. This scenario for decline will remain in place unless the price manages to break out of the 1-1 channel.

Short-term trading idea FX GBP/USD - bear speculation: expected drop below the 1.2550 - 1.2710 support zone

Trading opportunities on the currency pair: The British pound's slide began on Thursday the 25th of May, after the release of downwards revised GDP data for the first quarter. Pressure on the currency increased after a breakout of the upper boundary of the A-A channel and the TR trend line. The GBP/USD rate returned to the 1.2550 - 1.2710 zone, which had been acting as a resistance until the 18th of April. My base scenario sees the rate falling to around 1.2643 in time for the FOMC meeting on the 13-14th of June.
