Commodity-related currency pairs AUD/USD, USD/CAD, and NZD/USD on 4-hour charts. Complex analysis of APLs & ZUP scenarios

Minute (h4) operational scale

What trend will AUD/USD, USD/CAD, and NZD/USD follow in the second half of August? Let's find out the scenarios of AUD/USD, USD/CAD, and NZD/USD from August 18, 2020 according to the 4-hour charts

Australian Dollar vs US Dollar

Starting from 18, 2020 a further move of the AUD/USD currency pair will depend on the price action and a direction of the channel's borders of a Median Line (0.7220 - 0.7203 - 0.7185) of the pitchfork under the Minuette scale.

A breakout of the support level of 0.7160 at the lower border of a Median Line of the pitchfork under the Minuette operational scale will push AUD/USD towards the borders of a Median Line Minute (0.7160 - 0.7125 - 0.7090) with the prospects of reaching the upper border ISL38.2 (0.7010) of the equilibrium zone of the pitchfork under the Minute operational scale.

A breakout of resistance of 0.7220 at the upper border of a Median Line Minuette and a new local high of 0.7244 will open the door for a further uptrend of AUD/USD to the borders of the equilibrium zone (0.7265 - 0.7295 - 0.7320) of the pitchfork under the Minuette operational scale.

US Dollar vs Canadian Dollar

Starting from August 18, 2020 a further scenario of USD/CAD will depend on the price action and a direction of breaking the borders of a Median Line (1.3225 - 1.3245 - 1.3265) of the pitchfork under the Minuette operational scale.

When ISL38.2 Minuette that is support of 1.3225 is broken at the lower border of a Median Line Minuette, the door will be open to a lower local low of 1.3191. So, USD/CAD is expected to reach Shiff Line Minuette (1.3150) and the borders of the equilibrium zone (1.3125 - 1.3095 - 1.3065) of the pitchfork under the Minuette operational scale.
