AUD/USD Reactivates Weekly Trend Line Support

December 2, 2016

After a short break, welcome back to the Vantage FX News Centre.

Back in May when price was testing weekly trend line support amid weak fundamentals, we spoke about a possible AUD/USD long setup against popular consensus.

With price back retesting the same weekly trend line now 6 months later, the current AUD/USD setup that is unfolding is just about an exact carbon copy of last time!

The weekly Aussie chart highlights the higher time frame, trend line support level in play again. Even though the level has been chopped through, if you zoom into a lower time frame chart and look at how price reacted going through it each time, you can see that the level is highly significant.

Now that the trend line has held, it has essentially been reactivated as support.

AUD/USD Hourly:

We now zoom into an intraday chart to look for an actionable trading setup following the higher time frame support level having held. Confirmation of the level holding for me is usually a bounce and retest of previous short term resistance now holding as support. This intraday level gives the ability to use a tight stop and target some excellent risk:reward depending on how aggressive you want to be with your trading.
