AUD/USD Might Bounce Off of the Double Bottom

October 27, 2019 (Last updated on November 14, 2019) by

The long-term downtrend seen on the weekly chart of the AUD/USD currency pair is extending since January 2018. Starting from late July 2019, the pair is consolidating in a formation that now resembles a double bottom pattern. A successful bounce from the second local low can lead to a strong upside wave with a potential for a long entry.

The chart below shows the pattern’s neckline and the two bottoms marked with the yellow lines. The cyan line marks my entry level situated at 10% of the pattern’s height above the neckline. I will place my take-profit at the level marked with the green line, which is situated at 100% of the pattern’s height from the neckline. I will set my stop-loss to the low of the breakout candle or to the low of the preceding one if the breakout candle is trading mostly above the neckline. I won’t enter short positions in this setup, which is intrinsically a bullish one. You can click on the image below to see a full-size screenshot:

Update 2019-11-03: On October 31, the exchange rate broke through the cyan line and triggered a buy entry at 0.69161 with stop-loss at 0.68102 and take-profit at 0.71175:
