Looking at the AUD/USD

There is some focus on the head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart, with the neckline coming in at $0.7620. Although this is currently around 100 pips below the current spot price it is still worth keeping on the radar.

With momentum falling, the pair's neckline could be tested shortly and a close below here could see the pair target $0.7100. The fact the left shoulder is higher than the right also gives the pattern increased credibility.

I would look to initiate shorts on a close below the neckline and add to the positions on a subsequent close below the 2 April low of $0.7532.
