Talking Points

EURAUD 30min

Webinar: Aussie Crosses at Key Inflection Points Ahead of RBA

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Notes: EURAUD has continued to hold above the 1.5298-1.5325 barrier discussed last week. The pair broke above the upper median-line parallel last night & our near-term focus remains weighted to the topside while above this threshold with a breach higher targeting 1.5565 & 1.5662. A break below keeps the short-bias in play targeting the median-line / 200-day moving average at 1.5030/40.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of Successful Traders” series.

AUDUSD 30min
