Hey everyone! Welcome to this week's forex forecast for the week ending July 30th, 2021. I'm TraderBart with A1 Trading, and this week I'll be looking at USDJPY, EURAUD, NZDCHF & XAUUSD.
Price has recently broken out of the ascending channel, and we've already seen a retest and the impulsive move to the downside. However, we're once again seeing price approach the channel's bottom and nearing short-term resistance at 110.6. Look out in the week ahead for price to either break through this level, where it will likely continue travelling inside the channel. However, if we see price fail to break this level and instead reject, we could likely see a new trend form to the downside as this could potentially be the next lower high.
Price has closed off for the week touching and retracing the channel's bottom. Now that price has broken out of the consolidation phase following the ascending channel break, it's likely we could see this ascending channel continue as price heads to new highs to complete the long-term ascending channel pattern. We may get a much clearer touch of the channel's bottom before this move happens, so look out for proper touches and rejections before going long on this pair.
Price is now touching the descending channel's bottom and is already showing rejection to this level. If price continues to fail to break above, this could be a good position to go short. However, this may not be the best idea as looking overall and long-term, price is actually travelling in a bullish flag pattern, and we're currently in the flag, the position right before the impulsive upside move of the chart pattern. If we see price break above the channel, we'll likely see price head higher and complete the chart pattern.
Price is consolidating above the descending channel's top and is currently waiting on some sort of catalyst to make the next month. If price continues to stay above the channel, we will likely see price be bullish and travel higher towards the Liquidity Void at around 1900. However, if price closes back inside the channel, we'll likely see a retest of the bullish OB at around 1750.
