The Australian dollar has rallied in the last 2 weeks from a low of US75c to around US76.60c against the greenback, defying analysts’ predictions that the currency would tumble if the US Federal Reserve stuck to their plan to hike rates further next year and if new tax legislation in the US was passed.

Considering AUDUSD’s pullback from 0.7695–0.7700 horizontal-region, followed by its U-turn from 0.7635, the pair seems less likely to offer much trading opportunities unless clearing either the 0.7635 support or the 0.7700 resistance-mark. However, comparative strength of the USD indicates more downside of the pair, which in-turn indicates brighter chances of its drop to 0.7600 and then to the 0.7580 after conquering the 0.7635 rest-point. During the pair’s additional declines beneath 0.7580, the 0.7530 and the 0.7500 round-figure might please sellers. Alternatively, an upside break of 0. ...
Although better than expected UK Earnings triggered the GBPUSD’s bounce, the pair still remains below a short-term ascending trend-line, at 1.3370, that it broke yesterday.

GBPJPY is another GBP pair which took a U-turn after British employment details but still trades beneath recent TL break and hence continue remaining weaker.
GBPUSD’s gradual declines from 1.3550 seems dragging the pair beneath a short-term ascending trend-line, which if sustained could further fetch it to 1.3330 and then to the 1.3280-75 horizontal-line.

However, pair’s inability to extend latest downtick may trigger its upside to the 1.3405 and the 1.3450, breaking which 1.3480 and the 1.3510 can re-appear on the chart. During the pair’s additional advances beyond 1.3510, the 1.3550 and the 1. ...
