After breaking above the descending channel that it has traded within for more than a year, the Australian dollar has failed to gather much momentum against the greenback and once again appears to be struggling to push on.

Top trade idea for November 13th, 2015 – AUD/USD

When a trend is well established it’s easy to become complacent about potential reversals. Many traders have done well this year riding the AUD/USD downtrend, and shorted yesterday’s bounce to 0.7150, where the price met the down trend line.

Currently, many of the major currency pairs remain confined to a tight trading range, and owing to the lack of intraday volatility, investors are required to be fleet of foot when looking for meaningful returns.
