FX update for Wed 12th: TC

The US$ has weakened following the latest Trump/Russia email release and this has triggered some new trend line breakouts but also undermined others that were in progress. The USD/TRY gave a great TC Trading System trade yesterday for 300 pips and a 12 R return.

USDX weekly: the 95.50 support level is back in focus so watch this for any new make or break:

Trend line breakout trades and TC signals:

EUR/USD 4hr: this has made a bullish triangle breakout  for 35 pips thus far but watch for any new make or break at the major 1.15 level. Remember, this has been effective resistance for 2 1/2 years!

EUR/JPY 4hr: this earlier wedge breakout is now up 160 pips:

AUD/USD 4hr: a new triangle breakout for just 35 pips at the moment:

NZD/USD: this breakdown stalled at 0.72 support and once the Trump-email inspired US$ weakness kicked in but note the great 15 min TC SHORT that was here yesterday for a trade worth up to 6R!
