EUR/AUD: a way to bet against the euro
2019-11-11 • Updated
1. SELL at 1.5660; TP1 1.5625; TP2 1.5575; SL 1.5674;
2. SELL at 1.5620; TP 1.5575; SL 1.5635.
Cross currency pairs offer many exciting trading opportunities and are good for technical analysis.
For example, have a look at the weekly chart of EUR/AUD. Last week the pair tested the 50-week MA at 1.5770 but failed to get above it. A pin bar was formed below this resistance. It’s a sign that the downtrend continues. The weekly pivot is at 1.5674: as long as the pair stays below it, the outlook is negative.
Let’s move to H4. MACD entered the negative area, the pair fell below MAs, and it looks very much like a “Double Top” pattern with the neckline in the 1.5665 area. An opportunity to sell will present itself either below 1.5620 or on the retest of 1.5660.
The trend in the scenario above is clearly bearish. We have also had a recent break of structure at the marked horizontal arrows, which means we can expect price to react from the supply zone that broke the structure.
Hello, my beautiful readers. This week, we continue our critically detailed look at the markets in hopes of getting profitable trading opportunities. As usual, I'll be starting with the DXY (US Dollar Index) since it holds considerable sway over the Major currency pairs.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone.

The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates?
Western countries are trying to find other options for oil and gas supplies after a 10th package of sanctions, which will put more pressure on Russian oil and decrease global oil supply. Italy, for example, is in talks with Libya.
