Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:

AUDUSD – Aussie/dollar coiling pin bar setup

The AUDUSD has been coiling over the last few days (this means multiple inside bars) and this compression of price will likely lead to a breakout one way or the other soon. Given the underlying bullish momentum in this market we are slightly bullish and would not be surprised to see price break higher…note the multiple inside pin bars that have formed over the last few days showing rejection of lower prices. However, we should note there’s major resistance just above near 1.0600 that could keep this market contained over the short-term, if the market does rotate lower we can watch for buy setups from support to join the underlying bullish momentum in this market.  There’s some potentially volatile Australian employment news coming out about 30 minutes from this posting that could break this market from this current consolidation one way or the other.
