Charts to Start the Week 7/16/12

Good morning. Euro shows some sign of relief, recovering from $1.2160 but remains under pressure as recent rallies have been sold.

EURUSD

Not a good idea to look for buying opportunities, but rather wait for better levels to sell – if a correction is due.

Market sentiment: intraday – bearish, short-term – bearish

Potential trade strategy: to sell into rallies towards 1.2350-1.2400, targeting 1.2200 and below

USDCHF

Euro’s rally caused a reversal candle to be formed, so it seems that uptrend is running out of steam. A correction to .9680/00 should provide fresh buying opportunities

Market sentiment: intraday – neutral, short-term – bullish

Potential trade strategy: to buy dips around .9680/00

USDCAD

It shouldn’t be too easy to recover above 1.0180/00, so that’s probably a good level to look for new selling opportunities

Market sentiment: intraday – bearish, short-term – bearish

Potential trade strategy: to sell into rally at 1.0180, initial stop above 1.0230 and a target at 1.0050 or lower

AUDNZD

There’s one big reversal candle seen on the 4hrs chart below, so it’s obvious that selling pressure is high at these levels.

Market sentiment: intraday – neutral, short-term – bullish

Potential trade strategy: to sell on weakness/breakdown below 1.2815, target at 1.2750

AUDJPY

Support zone around 80.75 is again under pressure and it seems rather fragile while AUD fails to advance towards 81.50/70. I don’t think it’s a good idea to buy dips now, but rather wait for buying opportunities on strength – above 81.20

Market sentiment: intraday – slightly bullish, short-term – bullish

Potential trade strategy: to buy on strength above 81.20, target at 82.50

Market sentiment: intraday – bullish, short-term – bullish

Potential trade strategy: to buy on strength above 1.0250, initial target at 1.0450
