Here's an update on a few of the setups we’ve been tracking this week. For a complete breakdown of these setups and more, review this week’s Strategy Webinar.

AUDUSD: Is a Low in Place?

AUD/USD120min Price Chart

AUD/USD Price Chart - 120min Timeframe

We’ve been tracking key support barriers at 7636/45 and 7612 for the past few months and last week we highlighted a near-term descending channel into this zone. A breach above shifts the focus higher with a newly-identified pitchfork offering guidance on this advance. Look for interim support at the median-line with our focus higher while above the April open at 7686. A breach / close above 7780/87 would be needed to suggest a more significant low is in place with such a scenario targeting the 200-day moving average / 61.8% retracement at 7810/12.

AUD/USD IG Client Positioning

AUD/USD Client Sentiment
  • A summary of IG Client Sentimentshows traders are net-long AUDUSD- the ratio stands at +1.07 (50.7% of traders are long) – extremely weak bearishreading
  • Traders have remained net-long since Mar 22nd; price has moved 0.9% higher since then
  • The percentage of traders net-long is now its lowest since Mar 26thwhen AUDUSD traded near 0.77451
  • Long positions are 18.7% lower than yesterday and 3.5% lower from last week
  • Short positions are 32.3% higher than yesterday and 2.4% higher from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests AUDUSD prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current AUDUSD price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.

GBP/JPY Testing BIG Resistance

Price is testing a key resistance confluence at 151.84-152.17 and our focus is on a near-term inflection here. The immediate rally is at risk below this threshold and we’re on the lookout for some exhaustion. Ultimately a pullback would offer more favorable long-entries with our broader focus higher while above the monthly open. I highlighted this setup including the near-term trading levels in today’s GBP/JPY Scalp Report.

USD/CAD in Free-Fall

USD/CAD Daily Price Chart

USD/CAD Price Chart - Daily Timeframe

USD/CAD has plummeted nearly 4% off the March highs after reversing sharply off key confluence resistance at 1.3103/32. The decline has now taken out most of our support targets with the next big zone at 1.2579/82 where the 61.8% retracement of the 2018 range converges on the yearly open- look for a reaction there. Weakness surpassing this level keeps the short-bias in play targeting the 50-line around ~1.2540s and the measured head & shoulders target at 1.2482.

Initial resistance stands at 1.2633 & 1.2686 (both levels of interest for exhaustion / short-entries) with our broader bearish invalidation level now lowered to 1.2803. Intraday targets remain unchanged from last week’s USD/CAD scalp report.
