AUD/CAD Daily Chart

AUD/CAD Daily Breakout

(Created using Marketscope 2.0 Charts)

The AUD/CAD is attempting to breakout from a descending price channel that has been developing for the last two months. Breakouts can potentially be signaled on a move above the previous swing high, which is found at .9965. On a bullish breakout, traders can then begin to target the standing December 2015 high at 1.0169. Conversely, traders treating this breakout as a flag pattern may extrapolate 870 pips from the point of breakout to find targets near 1.0835.

In the event that a bullish breakout fails, traders will watch for prices to trade back inside of the previously mentioned price channel. This includes a move back below psychological resistance at .9900.
