  • Chart of the Day - 8/19/2009 – EUR/USD 0 comments
    Aug 19, 2009 10:49 AM

    (Chart courtesy of FX Solutions' FX AccuCharts. Price on 1st pane, Slow Stochastics on 2nd pane; horizontal support/resistance levels in yellow; uptrend lines in green; downtrend lines in red; 50-period simple moving average in light blue.)

    8/19/2009 – EUR/USD – Price action on EUR/USD, a 4-hour chart of which is shown, is currently in consolidation near the bottom of a parallel uptrend channel that has been in place since early June. This parallel uptrend channel exists within the context of a much larger parallel uptrend channel that has been in place almost since the beginning of the year. In the current smaller channel, two dynamic support/resistance areas are of key significance. First, in the event of a substantial breakdown below the bottom of the smaller channel, the immediate further downside support target resides around the bottom of the larger channel. Second, a strong breakout above the bearish counter-trend resistance line within the context of the smaller channel could target further major resistance at or near the top of the smaller channel.
