Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:
The AUDUSD pin bar reversal setup that we discussed in this week’s weekly price action outlook has come off lower today. We can see this setup showed a strong rejection of the key near-term resistance through 1.0600 and price is subsequently moving lower. We see key support coming in close below just above 1.0400 level. We see today’s move as just a downward retrace in the broader uptrend in this market, if you zoom out on your daily and weekly charts you can see this market has had a strong underlying bullish bias for some time now.
