AUD/USD Bear-flag in Full View, Awaiting Trigger

For forecasts, trading ideas, and educational content, check out the DailyFX Trading Guides.

AUD/USD has been in the spotlight in recent webinars, as the pair continues to work on building a bear-flag formation spanning back over a month now. Recently, it was rejected at a cross-road of resistance in the 7650/75-area, helping further along the pattern.

Aussie is currently trying to make its way higher off the lower parallel, and may indeed rally in the very short-term. But look for any rise to be short-lived as renewed weakness sets in and an eventual break takes shape below the rising trend-line off the underside of the pattern.

In the event of a trigger, the first target will be the May low near 7400, but a lower-low towards 7300 and worse will be targeted. For now, it’s just a set-up on the radar, so we’ll update with more specific details when the time is right should we see this promising set-up go from scenario to reality.

Furthermore, updates will be provided on this idea and others in the trading/technical outlook webinars held on Wednesday and Friday.
