February has been a terrific month for both trend and range traders, as per forecast given during last to last week's Trader's contest video wrap-up. Dollar Yen continues to move up in higher heavens, while risky currencies are maintaining their ranges. What comes up next is the real deal to be seen. With financial season coming to an end with next month, we should see close of many big positions in the coming weeks. How the future folds is more likely to be visible on higher time frame charts. Here in this article, we will see some of the big trade setups which can work out in coming days and weeks.
Let's go ahead and do some practical analysis of select currencies.
Forecasts for going Long
EUR AUD: Euro is all set to go higher against Aussie, with PRZ around 1.1960 and targeting 1.3550 as the first take profit level. Keeping a stop loss of 1.18 is recommended for this trade giving out a decent risk reward ratio of 1:7.

USD CAD: Loonie will plummet and we buy it against dollar. This pair should be a great buy within the demand zone at 0.98, keeping a stop loss at 100 pip for a 500 pip gain. This trade thus provides just around 1:5 in risk reward aspect.
USD CAD, 0.98, SL 0.97 (100), Target 1.03 (500), 1:5

While all long trades have high risk reward ratio, it's still relatively lesser than what the short side of the forecasts provide.
