Trading Short USDCAD. USDJPY Symmetrical Pennant. USDCHF Ranging


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Technicals.

I’m Brad Alexander and on behalf of Valutrades today we will take a look at WTI (US Oil), EURUSD, AUDUSD, USDCHF, USDJPY, and USDCAD.


Yesterday we promised to look at technical opportunities to see if we get a reversal from the USD weakness.Screenshot 2021-08-31 at 11.57.37

However, we see price action breaking key levels on pairs like EURUSD, AUDUSD and ranging markets against the safe-haven currencies like USDCHF and USDJPY.

On USDCAD we can combine the fundamentals of a weak USD and higher Crude prices and look for a possible short trade.

Price action is trying to break this key level and we are seeing some bearish indication from the Stochastic Oscillator.Screenshot 2021-08-31 at 11.58.27

If this level of support is broken we see several key levels below.Screenshot 2021-08-31 at 11.58.53

On USDCHF we see a ranging market but we will monitor these lower lows to see if price action forms a descending triangle where we see an overall downward bias through the summer.Screenshot 2021-08-31 at 11.59.04

Last week we spotted this Symmetrical Pennant on USDJPY and the lower trend line is holding position.

The upper trend line, however, may falter as we see strong resistance just below 110.2.Screenshot 2021-08-31 at 11.59.40

The Bullish Engulfing candle we spotted last week gave us a great Buy opportunity on WTI but watch the Stochastic Oscillator as we now have a strong Overbought indication and OPEC meeting tomorrow.
