AUD, USD, NZD, EUR: technical layout
2020-06-17 • Updated
The last Monday was depressive, Tuesday changed gears later in the day, while Wednesday is cautiously positive. Most currency pairs appear to be a bit confused by this scrambled beginning of the week. Consequently, charts are showing either consolidation or slow retraces on the previous moves.
Against both the US dollar and the Japanese yen, the AUD trades at the level were local uptrend and downtrend collide. The current disposition in line with the Awesome Oscillator suggests it may slide down to touch the supporting uptrend and eventually get back up to test the downtrend marked above.
NZD/CAD is showing a pure sideways motion since the first week of June. In the last episode, it inched above the channel’s resistance of 0.8780 and slid down to its support at 0.8720. The current local uptrend suggests it may be the beginning of another bullish wave – the Moving Averages will be capping and checking this upward intention.
The US dollar gave up a bit of its positions against the CAD, dropping down to the local support of 1.3510 in a downtrend since last Friday. Against the JPY, it is in fluctuation in the channel between the levels 107.50 and 107.20, currently testing the resistance of the 50-MA.
Against the USD, the EUR is crouching upwards after an undone peak at the beginning of the week. The resistance of the 50-MA at 1.1282 is being tested and will check if the current bullish push is enough to advance higher. Against the GBP, the EUR is dropping after a sharp drop on Tuesday – the bearish target lies at 0.8950.

Earnings season is a crucial time for investors and analysts, as it provides insights into how well companies have performed over the past quarter and gives indications of their future earnings. In 2023, expectations for US Q1 earnings were low due to economic challenges and rising interest rates. Surprisingly, many companies beat these low expectations, with 75% of S&P 500 companies surpassing forecasts.
When I started trading stocks a few years ago, I often needed to pay more attention to my technical analysis skills and trust that the market would play fair according to my analysis. I have since discovered that the safer approach to trading stocks is to, more often than not, seek out investing opportunities - that is, catching stock commodities with a potential to rise.

Hey folks, it’s a wrap to yet another month in the 2023 calendar, and I’m guessing you know what that means - time for another episode in the “What To Trade” series. For December, I will be mapping out trade more cautiously as the market volatility often drops
