Notes on this morning’s forex...
AUD/NZD has broken the downtrend in its relative strength index, by one percentage point. The bearish RSI divergence of a week earlier set off a slight decline that never broke free of the sideways price trend in effect since Oct. 25. A bearish RSI divergence means the index, while above 70, began to fall as the price rose.
The developing PLN/HUF bearish RSI divergence has been invalidated, as the the RSI rises ABOVE its prior high.
Channels of interest:
CAD/PLN and NZD/HUF have each flipped from a downtrend to an uptrend. The move, in both cases, can also be analyzed as a fluctuation within a larger, somewhat sloppy sideways trend.
USD/HKD has established a strong uptrend after meandering ambiguously for eight days, pushing strongly up to beyond the pair’s 20-day high.

What I Track
For the daily charts, I track approximately 120 currency pairs.
Channels of interest: By "of interest", I mean a relatively new trend that has room to move before meeting major resistance, especially if it’s a decisive bounce off of a 20-day high or low. Plus, it has to look right to me. This is not science. Also, channels of interest aren’t necessarily positions I would play without some sort of corroborating momentum evidence.
