AUD/USD Next Pending Bearish Breakout

(Created Using IG Charts)

The AUD/USD is trending back towards 2017 lows, after declining as much as 145 pips from the May 23rd swing high at .7517. With the pair again trending lower in the short term, traders may elect to trade a fresh bearish breakout beneath the standing yearly low at .7328. Traders should note that current daily ATR (average true range) for the pair reads at 50 pips. This means an initial profit target of 2X ATR may be considered near .7228. Also a 1X ATR stop loss may be considered at .7378 to create a 1:2 Risk/Reward ratio.

In the event that prices fail to breakout lower, traders may elect to delete any pending entry orders to sell the market. Currently the 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) for the AUD/USD is found at .7433. This line may be used as a dynamic reference for the short term trend, with a daily close above this value suggesting a change in the markets current direction.
