Key Support/Resistance Levels for Popular Pairs
We teach that trades should be entered and exited at or very close to key support and resistance levels. There are certain key support and resistance levels that can be watched on the more popular currency pairs this week.
We had expected the level at 1.1767 might act as resistance, as it had acted previously as both support and resistance. Note how these “flipping” levels can work well. The H1 chart below shows how the price rejected this level with a large bearish outside candlestick at the start of last Wednesday’s Asian session, as initial results of the U.S. presidential election suggested that President Trump had probably won re-election, before later results in favor of Biden turned the price decisively bullish. This trade was mildly profitable despite subsequent bullish price action, achieving a maximum positive reward to risk ratio of about 1 to 1 based upon the size of the entry candlestick.
We had expected the level at 105.20 might act as resistance, as it had acted previously as both support and resistance. Note how these “flipping” levels can work well. The H1 chart below shows how the price rejected this level at the start of last Wednesday’s Asian session with a bearish inside candlestick, as initial results of the U.S. presidential election suggested that President Trump had probably won re-election. The price has continued to fall strongly making this trade nicely profitable, achieving a maximum positive reward to risk ratio so far of more than 4 to 1 based upon the size of the entry candlestick structure.That is all for this week.
