Technical Outlook


  • The breach above the 1.2880 threshold last week marks the euro correction we have been waiting for
  • Further topside advances remain as long the 1.29 support barrier is respected (near-confluence of the monthly pivot & 200-day moving average) on a daily close basis.
  • Note daily RSI has recently broken above 50 and leaves more upside for a tag of the 60-threshold
  • Key Resistance Range 1.3060/70 (3/18 gap) – Breach eyes objectives at 1.3113 and 1.3227.
  • Key Support 1.2890- Break targets 1.2750 and 1.2680

Scalp Notes: Break below confluence at 1.2970 risks a run on key support at 1.289- Looking to buy weakness above this mark. Note that the R1 monthly pivot rests at 1.3040 and may offer some pushback before we continue higher.


*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break below 1.2890 eyeing subsequent support targets. It’s extremely important in these market conditions to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
