Good day forexers! In my technical analysis, there could be a symmetrical triangle forming in the 1-hour chart of the Euro versus the US dollar currency pair (EUR/USD). Symmetrical triangles are often neutral so the breakout bias would most likely be from where the trend is coming from. In our case right here, the triangle’s coming from an uptrend.
New Zealand Dollar Looking To Revisit Its All-Time High Against The Greenback
The New Zealand dollar versus the US dollar (NZD/USD) is currently at 0.7770. In simple terms, 0.7770 USD is equal to 1.00 NZD. In my technical perspective, from September of 2009 to 2010, the forex pair consolidated sideways and formed an inverted head and shoulders on an uptrend. A month after, it broke out from the said pattern until it reached a 2-year high of 0.7975.
The US Dollar Index (USDX), an index which measures the valuation of the US dollar against a basket of currencies like the euro, has been stuck in a trading range after it rebounded from its low of 75.631 last November 4. It peaked at 81.444 on November 30 but it has since moved sideways. Yesterday, however, the dollar jumped by 1.0%, its best percentage gain in three weeks.
For the past week or so, the US dollar has rallied strongly against its major peers thanks to the drama in Ireland and in the Korean peninsula. Ireland needed about €85 billion ($114 billion) to help service its ballooning deficit and to provide some liquidity in its commercial banks.
US Dollar Trading At An All-time Low Against the Japanese Yen!
Happy Halloween FX fiends, I mean friends! Indeed, it is very scary at least for the USD as it is now trading at a new historical low versus the Japanese yen. To end the week, the USDJPY surpassed its former all-time low at 80.43 which it set way back in April 1995 and closed at 80.38. As you can see from its weekly chart, the pair has been on a long term downtrend since the latter part of 2007.
Aussie Poised to Make Another Run Against the Loonie
Welcome to another week of FX trading! Contrary to my post last October 5 (kindly see it here), the AUDCAD did not encounter any resistance at its previous high at 0.9200. Instead, it broke right above it to form an ascending triangle pattern. In such pattern, buyers are deemed to be the more aggressive than the sellers.
New Historical High For the Aussie. Next, US Dollar Parity!
Good day to you my Forex friends! Guess what?!?! The Australian dollar has recently marked a new historical high over the US dollar. And from the looks of it, it seems that the AUDUSD pair has still a lot of legs left to move higher. As you can see from its 8-hour chart, the pair has been trading on a well defined uptrend for quite some time now.
