Notes on this morning’s forex...
AUD/NZD rose to a slightly higher high but swiftly retreated and resumed its agonizingly slow fall on the hourly charts. The decline began following a bearish divergence on the relative strength index. A bearish RSI divergence means the index, while above 70, began to fall as the price rose.
The developing PLN/HUF bearish RSI divergence is close to being invalidated as the RSI rises to its prior high.
Channels of interest:
EUR/USD fell sharply to its 20-day low, invalidating its uptrending channel. The pair is now best analyzed as a downtrending channel that began Oct. 27.
GBP/AUD and USD/SGD widened their uptrending channels after a sideways move lasting several days.
NZD/USD, NZD/JPY, GBP/THB, AUD/PLN, AUD/ZAR, CAD/PLN, GBP/ZAR, NZD/HUF continue sideways moves that have created ambiguity regard their downtrending channels.
- GBP/AUD, GBP/CZK from Oct. 28.
- USD/SGD, from Oct. 31.

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.
