AUD/USD in a Symmetrical Triangle on H4 Chart

December 4, 2016 (Last updated on December 5, 2016) by Andriy Moraru

A strong downtrend that was active in AUD/USD from November 8 till November 21 has consolidated into a classic symmetrical triangle pattern. Being a continuation signal, such a triangle suggests a further bearish price action in this currency pair following a breakout.

The chart screenshot below shows the triangle marked with the yellow lines. The cyan line is my breakout entry level located at 10% of the triangle’s height (at the base) below the lower border. The green line is my potential target; it is placed at 100% of the triangle’s height below the border. I will set my stop-loss to the high of the breakout bar or the high of the preceding bar (if the breakout one trades mostly below the border). A bullish breakout will invalidate this symmetrical triangle. You can click on the image to see its full-size version:

Update 2016-12-05 20:09 GMT: The trade entry order has been removed because the pattern had been invalidated by the price action:
