  • Dollar trading bullish against most of its major peers on stronger labor market figures and sentiments of a rate hike.
  • The EUR/USD seems to violate the descending triangle pattern. Look’s like a good time to short the pair.
  • Quick trade setups in the EUR/USD & AUD/USD as the US banks remain closed in observance of Veterans Day.

 

During the Asian session, the Greenback maintained its bullish momentum and advanced towards a 16-month high as investors foresee the US Federal Reserve to keep contracting the monetary policy. However, the Sterling remained under significant pressure amid risk over a Brexit deal.

Today, the markets are likely to trade sideways as the economic calendar remains empty and offers no catalysts to trade. That’s because the US and Canadian banks will remain closed in the observance of Veterans Day and Remembrance Day. Let’s have a quick look at EUR/USD.

EUR/USD – Violating the Descending Triangle Pattern

Recalling FX Leaders Weekly Update, Nov 12 – 16, the EUR/USD seems to trade in line with our forecast. The pair is peaking out of a descending triangle pattern, violating the pattern at $1.1335. The pair may remain in selling below $1.13350 until $1.1250 and $1.1165.

AUD/USD – Pulling Back Below Double Top Retest

During the previous week, the Reserve Bank of Australia left the interest rate on hold at 1.50% in the wake of falling house prices and continued low inflation. Consequently, the Aussie felt a lack of demand as investors switched their investments towards the dollar – a currency in demand.

On the hourly chart, the AUD/USD formed a double top pattern at $0.7295 to fall below $0.7220. The prices are still holding above 20 & 50 periods EMA which will be there to extend support above $0.7200. It shows a bullish sentiment of traders. On the other hand, the recent daily close is a bearish engulfing which demonstrates a strong bearish sentiment of traders.
