Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • 8673 Represents Key Resistance- 3-way confluence of Channel Resistance, Andrew’s pitchfork and the 88.6% Fibonacci retracement from the decent off the 2011 highs
  • DailyRSI remains in overbought territory and while our initial bias is to fade this rally, it’s important to note that things can stay overbought for an indefinite time period- As such, we’ll respect a topside breach above this formation as our broader bias remains weighted to the topside
  • Note the last times we saw 6 days of consecutive rallies
  • Jan 27-2012- Next day 0.95% pullback then surged higher
  • July 22, 2011- Next day small range- then surged higher
  • March 25th 2011- Next day small inside day then surged higher
  • Topside breach targets 8770 (R3 monthly pivot) and 8817 (1.236% Fibonacci Extension)
  • Key Support Break below Pitchfork bisector invalidates near-term strength

Scalp Notes: Bottom Line: 8675 is Paramount- Topside break on a close basis risks further advances into our resistance targets. The RSI signature since the Sunday open remains constructive with only a dip below the 40-threshold suggesting that the recent rally may have run its course.

*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break above 8675 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.
