Friday’s close saw the Audusd currency pair holding firmly above 1.0200 support. The week ahead appears to be setting up for a bullish run to retest 1.0550-1.0600, and eventually, perhaps to re-attain 1.0800 highs, if those levels give way. The weekly chart below illustrates the horizontal support line drawn across previous highs at 1.0200. This is the level that, if breached, will give the appearance of a left shoulder formation to equal a right shoulder at the same level, if retested. However, the recent price action is suggesting that this scenario is not likely to play out within the next few days.
The 4-hour chart shows a triangle holding above 1.0330 following a test of 1.0200 support. It is also worth noting that the pivotal 1.3030 level converges exactly with the .618% fibonnacci retracement level. This leads me to believe that a potentially strong breakout is in the works, and will be confirmed once the top of the triangle is cleared at 1.0450. I have bought the pair with targets at 1.0515 (daily trendline), and 1.0710, 1.1618 fibonnacci extension of the 1.0220-1.0450 up-swing. Only a clear breach of 1.0200 will change this general bullish outlook, in my opinion.
