AUD/USD is getting ready for a break
2019-11-11 • Updated
Recommendations: BUY 0.7918 SL 0.7863 TP 0.8030, SELL 0.7838 SL 0.7893 TP 0.7740
On the daily chart, AUD/USD keeps consolidating in the range between 0.7835 and 0.7915. The break of its upper border will create an opportunity for the bullish trend resumption. On the other hand, successful test of support at 0.7835 will increase the risks of 113% target of the “Shark” pattern.

What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
