Scalp Notes: Bottom Line: Although our longer-term metrics continue to point higher, recent price action suggests our medium-term focus should be lower towards 1.3760-1.38. A cleanly formed descending channel may continue to guide price action with rallies into 1.4035 to be sold. A break (daily close) above this mark invalidates our near-term bias. RSI has turned bearish since the start of the week with rallies into the 60-threshold likely to offer clear short-scalp triggers. The range is rather large here and profits should be meticulously booked at the targeted ATR percentage or subsequent scalp level- whichever comes first.

*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break above 1.1.4035 eyeing subsequent resistance targets. It’s extremely important 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.
