Nice bearish set-up in AUD/CAD

Looking into the daily and weekly charts for AUD/CAD.

Source: Bloomberg

Daily chart:

Through clear support. Rallies into 0.9300 should be met with a wall of new supply. Therefore, shorts look compelling here. Stops could be placed in two steps:

  1. 0.9370
  2. 0.9411

Oil looks to have found somewhat of a bottom, which should help the CAD, while Aussie economics are not looking great right now. Employment data next week and China trade data are also likely catalysts.

Weekly chart:

Clearly through the neckline of a head and shoulders pattern – this targets 86c. The trade is to add to the short on a break of the July low.
