Daily Observations: A Non-FOMC Trade: AUD/NZD Triangle Seeks Resolution

Daily Observations: A Non-FOMC Trade: AUD/NZD Triangle Seeks Resolution

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Senior Strategist

Looking for a pair that will be buffed from the Fed? One such possibility we've been exploring in recent days has been waiting for resolution in the AUDNZD triangle.

AUDNZD Daily Chart: August 2014 to Present

Daily Observations: A Non-FOMC Trade: AUD/NZD Triangle Seeks Resolution

Typically, the preference is to trade a consolidation in the direction of the broader trend. For AUDNZD for several years, the trend has been lower. However, in recent weeks, an attempt at establishing a longer-term bottom may be in effect.

Accordingly, there are opportunities on both sides of the recent triangular consolidation in AUDNZD (with risk levels outlined below):

Trade Idea #1: Long AUDNZD

Entry: 1.1305 or above

Stop: 1.0895 or below

Risk: -410-pips (or more depending upon exact entry/stop)

Target #1: 1.1755 (pennant/flag 61.8% extension from April low) (+450-pips from 1.1305 entry)

Target #2: 1.2285 (100% extension) (+980-pips)

Trade Idea #2: Short AUDNZD

Entry: 1.0895 or below

Stop: 1.1305 or above

Risk: -410-pips (or more depending upon exact entry/stop)

Target #1: 1.0485 (+410-pips from 1.0895 entry)

Target #2: 1.0200 (+695-pips)

Target #3: 1.0019 (yearly low) (+876-pips)
