FX: the bigger picture and the noise.

Not much has changed since yesterday’s update except I did manage to sort out my Windows 10 and screen shot issues. There are some bigger picture patterns setting up on many FX pairs that continue to try and grid through to completion. These can be seen on the daily charts, and on larger time frames for some pairs, but much of the movement within these patterns is just choppy noise-type action. This is still trade-able if you are able to catch the movement during the higher-momentum European and US sessions for sure but, still, it’s really just noise. The thing with these larger patterns though is that it gives us levels to watch for any make or break action. Some of these patterns and trend lines are shown below.

USDX: this is within a range bound Flag or channel on the weekly time frame but, on the daily, its still making lower lows and lower highs as we wait for this week’s NFP. Mixed US data overnight have traders nervous about the US rate hike agenda:

USDX weekly: a Flag that has gone on now for well over 12 months!

USDX daily: a descending channel within the weekly Flag:

USD/CAD daily: the 1.30 is holding as support for now but watch for any grief from the 1.35 level IF price gets up that far:

GBP/NZD daily: also in a large triangle but watch the 2.10 S/R level as well:
