For many traders, selecting setups involves cycling through charts until they come upon a recognizable pattern.

For fundamental traders, the evaluation process starts by assessing the strength or weakness of a particular currency and then seeking out ideal counterparts for the scenario. If we approached technicals the same way, it can help filter better opportunities and keep us from the siren call of those setups that play more to emotions rather than reason. We take a targeted technical analysis view of the Dollar, Pound and Australian Dollar in this weekend Strategy Video.
