AUDUSD—back at resistance

The Aussie drifted back to a high of 1.0753 overnight. Drifted is the correct word. The move did not have a lot of energy and one can see the lack of momentum in the diverging RSI on the one-hour chart. In doing this, it took out my short from yesterday at breakeven but I re-established it this morning at a better price.

As I wrote yesterday, on the daily chart, the picture appears corrective with a three-wave structure down to the 1.0441 price. The pair would be in the B wave. Given that the 1.0757 prior high was near the monthly 1.0746 pivot calculation as well as near the .382 retracement of 1.0724 (1.0257/1.1012), the fact that this is serving as resistance again this morning is significant.

It is true, though, that a pair that hangs around just below resistance can often break through it. Should it do so, the next resistance is at 1.0820 and then 1.0889. Support on the four-hour chart is at 1.0690 and 1.0634. The latter is the short-term support line but also at the 50% point of the 1.0257/1.1012 range. A break below 1.0600 opens up the possibility of
1.0567, 1.0441, and 1.0359.

Here is the one-hour chart:

My purpose in writing this blog is to show you how one trader, me, makes trading decisions and survives while trading Forex. One of the biggest problems I had when I first started trading was trying to apply the “rules” to actual trades. Another was the psychology—limiting losses and letting profits run. If you study my blog, you’ll see how I deal with both those issues. So my writings are not trade recommendations but rather educational in purpose. You have to decide on your own approach to trading. Remember that trading is risky.
