Past Forex Chart Examples

The EURUSD was in an interesting situation during this time. Did we see an upside or downside continuation? The currency pair was at a talking point.
Before I give my analysis, I am quite curious what you think happened with the EURUSD? Do you expect a bull month? Or are you a USD bull and expect a bearish EURUSD? Write a comment down below what you are! Thanks!

The monthly candlesticks of May had the following interesting points:
1)      April’s candle was a bullish engulfing candle of March;
2)      The monthly low of May could not break the low of April;
3)      Half of the candle is a wick at the bottom;
4)      The monthly candle looks suspiciously like an inside candle.

Key levels for the bulls and are bears to watch out for are these:
1)      May’s high and low at 1.3250 and 1.2780;
2)      The current bottom at 1.2740.

The key question is:
a)      Do we see an upside like suggested with the blue lines in the screenshot below?
b)      OR do we see a downside like suggested with the dark red lines in the screenshot below?
My bias is to the upside because last month was an inside candle after bullish engulfing twins. BUT if the EURUSD were to break below last month’s low, then I will switch gears and become bearish. No problem 🙂
The Cable has been stuck in a relatively tight range on this monthly chart. A massive fall of more than 7.500 pips was impressive, but the currency was bouncing up and down within a wedge and sideways movement.

The Cable is very indecisive and any movement within the 1.42 and 1.70 range is basically a bounce of the top and bottom of that range (beige brown horizontal lines). When did we see a break finally? And to which side?

Due to the cable breaking the major bottom trend line of the wedge (blue trend line), the currency seems well set up for a break to the downside and a retest of the bottom.

Of course, there are small support levels which need to be broken such as:
1)      Recent bottom / support levels at 1.51 & 1.50 (dark red)
2)      Potentially new trend line (bottom black)

To the upside there are crucial resistance levels which could send the GBPUSD back down again:
a)      1.56 top (purple line)
b)      1.58 Fib and resistance (purple line)
c)       1.63 mega top (purple line)
d)      Resistance trend line (top black)

My biased is similar to the EURUSD: upside. A move up to 1.58 for a bigger correction and then down to retest 1.35 is still the most likely pattern.
The analysis on the Aussie can be short:  a massive 900 pips fall in May! WOW! That is great Forex trading… what a trend!
The downside momentum broke both of the support trend lines (black) and one of the two horizontal support levels (dark red).
What remains is the lowest support level (dark red) at 0.94… once that gets broken then the AUDUSD could make its way down the huge 382 Fib of the monthly chart  (green line) at 0.9150. Here you can read  The Benefits and Danger of Online Forex Trading.

The analysis can also be quite simple for the USDJPY. The uptrend has been massive and extremely powerful.
The monthly chart has had higher monthly highs and higher monthly lows for 9 months straight. Could it post yet another bullish month with higher candle high and higher candle low?

The answer I think is yes.

The currency nicely paused at the 382 and 500 retracement Fibs. But eventually broke through those levels and the currency is now halfway to the 500 and 618 Fib.
I believe the chance is high that the currency will use the psychological 100 level to bounce back to the upside and eventually sometime this month hit the 618 Fib at 105.50.

In any case, last month’s low of 97 should not be broken otherwise this uptrend is temporarily put on ice.
