audusd sell

We’ve got a serious line up of new announcements from a few central banks this session which is probably going to cause this session to be very volatile.

Leading into the New York session I noticed that the AUDUSD had rejected a breakout higher that occurred during the Asia session – which is what I generally refer too as the asia breakout trap, or an asia session fakeout.

This is usually a sign of what is to come during the busier sessions, these kind of breakout traps can have good follow through in the London and New York session.

On the 4 hour chart you can see a thick bodied bearish rejection candle which was an early bird signal into the move.


Asia Breakout Failed Fuels Intense Sell Off

audusd brekaout trap move

The asia breakout trap price action we discussed in the last part of the commentary seen very aggressive bearish follow through that session.

After the long weekend break was over, selling action intensified – producing some serious bearish pressure as price gets slaughtered to re-test a major support level.

Look how powerful these simple concepts are. First a mean reversion signal gets us in right at the top of the move – mean reversion signals are notorious for kicking off long, extended moves.

Then an ‘in your face’ asia breakout signal, completing the pattern to create a breakout trap and reverse trade signal, push the market down even harder.

It’s a great feeling when you get into trades like this where you based your trading decision of price movements themselves – not some magical indicator that you’re not sure how it’s coming up with its signals.

    Hello Dale

    I am confused by where you have drawn your support line @ 0.79159 as I don’t understand why you decided to put it there. I had drawn my support line at 0.78819 because I have seen price come to this level before and respecting it and go away from it .
