AUD/USD in a Tight Bullish Pennant on Daily Chart

December 21, 2017 (Last updated on December 27, 2017) by

AUD/USD is currently consolidating inside a perfect example of a bullish pennant pattern. The daily chart shows that after four days of rally, the currency pair stalled and is now trading in a narrowing range for five days in a row.

The pennant itself is marked with the yellow lines on the image below. The cyan line is my entry level in case of a bullish breakout. It is placed at 10% of the pennant’s width above the upper border. The green line is my potential take-profit level placed at 100% of the same distance. I will set my stop-loss to the low of the breakout candle or to the low of the preceding candle if the former trades mostly outside the pennant. I will ignore bearish breakouts from this pattern, as they provide unreliable trading signals. You can click on the chart to see a full-size screenshot:

Update 2017-12-21 14:06 GMT: It did not take long for the Aussie to break out of the pennant. It triggered my buy stop order just half an hour ago at 0.76808 with a stop-loss at 0.76533 and a take-profit at 0.77459. It looks like it will not take long for the pair to either hit the take-profit or bounce back to stop-loss.
