AUDUSD has worked its way into a clear pennant formation. This technical pattern typically ends in with continuation, but volatility and the fundamentals they represent will have a say in its ultimate direction. For some currencies and markets (S&P 500, Australian dollar), low volatility is a key support as it further encourages investors to expose themselves for greater gains. For others (US dollar, yen, Treasuries), strength is found in the 'fear' assessed in a higher volatility backdrop. In today's video, we look at the prevailing trends - and the extremes they promote - in the context of trade setups on AUDUSD, yen crosses and other primed markets.
