Forex Trade Setups Commentary: Gold pin bar and AUDJPY inside pin
GOLD pin bar:
Gold formed a large bullish pin bar setup today showing rejection of support near 1210.00-1215.00. With this pin bar having a rather long lower tail it is possible that will price will retrace a portion of the tail’s length before / if it ultimately moves higher as a result of this rejection candle.
Should price move higher off this pin bar setup we see resistance coming in near 1260.00-1265.00.
AUDJPY inside pin bar:
Price moved dramatically lower today in the AUDJPY after an inside pin bar combo that formed yesterday in the course of the weakening momentum in this market. Note how price moved down into the next major support near 73.60.
