only a fundy view
no bearing on cold hard trading....
A change in the wind?
Most sentiment analysis from the big banks places AUD sentiment at neutral to bullish. This is a change from bullish most recently (they're only bankers remember).
Here is a possible, maybe, kind-of hint of change based on volume and OI.

Thanks for the post.
Updated EW chart for Aussie
Bearish structure while V is not taken out
One for you S, using NFP on M15.
Isn't that a bit of a stretch though?
I mean, I've seen cleaner setups.. unless I'm missing something obvious. Did you catch this before or after the price adjustment?
(Not being critical, just interested in what made that trade compelling before the move.)
View that the run down was overdone (technically and fundamentally)
Ample preceding divergence to get my attention
Better than 88.6% retracement to form a DB while failing to make new low
MACD already positive before that last leg down
The extremely attractive risk on offer
Made plenty shorting the GBPUSD
A no-brainer as they say.
two spinning tops @ 23.6. sign of indecision. was a warning.
I guess it was. I read it as 'waiting' in the pre-NFP context and reassurance that the market wasn't too interested in heading lower.
yeah, pre NFP is ballsy. time for a backfill though.
True. I didn't tempt them with much... )
if you knew the setup you would have been loaded for the move.
you trade thru the news, not after it .
all retail sits there like " a deer in the headlites "
the woulda, coulda, shoulda yapping about it later means zip.
Exactly.. the post could have been a Capt. Hindsight chart..
(Don't take that the wrong way AusDoc, I don't think you're 'that' type at all, and I assumed you had taken that on a solid setup..)
I just wanted to see what AusDoc's thoughts were leading into that move.. what 'made the trade compelling'.
Actually, to be specific, what made the trade compelling in that last little move up before the big spike; There had been a few divergences before that point but none that followed through with a move.. so unless you'd take each one I don't see what made that last little spurt stand out.
4 hour data
a pump or a dump
Yes, interesting. Break of flat side of triangle and trendline to head higher or time for one more stab lower? We shall see.
Hopefully you found the answer earlier but a couple of charts are attached that might add something. On the M15 chart the fib tool was applied on close of the final leg down and I placed my entry, stop and two profit target orders (then waited a little longer than I had hoped - I don't usually trade NFP but am taking afresh look at this).
Note that the setup existed pretty clearly on an hourly chart also. Note the clear support level. When all the ducks line up a trader will engage. A question to consider would be, given the setup, why wouldn't you take the trade? I trade what I see since, at least when I'm awake, the market doesn't send me a telegram.
cool.. Yeah, I noticed a few things from before But this will help others reading along.
It was a solid trade regardless. I do love how the news jolt just ended up being a catalyst for what was already forming beforehand.
Or, what was setup before the move.
Welp, now that everyone's talking about it, time for the Chinese market to dry up.
