Weekly Forex Price Action Setups Jun 9 – 14
EURUSD – Inside Bar At Resistance Levels
Climbing 6 of the last 8 days, the Euro has been looking impressive in gaining +450 pips in the process. The pair on Friday formed an inside bar at a key resistance level 1.3263. It should be noted the pair is stuck between 1.3200 which was prior resistance, and the 1.3312 which was the A bar’s high and also role reversal level in late Feb. If 1.3200 holds, then 1.3312 should be under attack. Above this is 1.3357 and 1.3450. Below 1.3200 puts 1.3150 and 1.3060 in play.
USDJPY – Pin Bar at Key Level. More Upside?
Down 800+ pips from the yearly highs, the USDJPY has fallen 9 of its last 12 days. On Friday, the pair formed a long tailed pin bar signal off a key role reversal level in 96.52. Intraday lows were actually just 2 pips south of 95, with the pair bouncing over 280 pips off the lows.
The intraday charts show massive buying off 95, so this could be a legitimate with trend setup. I however would not be buying on the break above the pin bar, as the risk and SL would have to be large, thus imbalancing the risk to reward ratios. So I’ll consider pullbacks towards 96.52 and 96, while targeting 99 and perhaps 100.
GBPUSD – Also Formed Inside Bar Setup
Like the Euro, the pound has also formed an inside bar setup, but between the two, this one looks a little stronger. Notice how in the last 8 days, the bull bars were much more impulsive, with them getting larger as they climbed?
This shows an increase in buying pressure, and the inside bar on Friday also has a downward wick, showing a rejection intraday, or buyers willing to come in on pullbacks. If we get a strong intraday 1hr or 4hr close above 1.5630, then 1.5800 should come into focus. If this key level holds, then 1.5500 and 1.5400 will be under attack.
Gold Forms Pin Bar At Aforementioned Level
On Tuesday last week, we recapped a sell trade recommendation at 1415 in my market commentary which sold off over $28. We recommended another sell off the level if it offered a good signal. To end the week, the precious metal formed a bearish pin bar signal which was with trend. Notice how 4 of the next 5 candles also showed upside rejections, communicating any attempt to rally found sellers.
The result was a larger $44 sell off, so anyone entering on a retrace to the 1415 level would have profited handsomely with a well over 3.5:1 reward to risk play. Now the PM is consolidating on the key 1380 level. If this fails, then 1360 is up next, but aggressive selling will likely attract more with trend traders in assumption the trend will resume.
