Technical Outlook


  • Initial objective cited in last week’s report failed at Resistance Target 3 just ahead of 1.06 objective (note simultaneous break below 1.0490/95 Fib confluence and RSI support trigger)
  • RSI still holding 40-threshold- Break offers conviction on shorts
  • Key sup 1.0295 (61.8% Fib) - Break eyes objective at 1.0215 Fib Confluence
  • Topside resistance 1.0396-1.0403- Breach targets 1.0470-1.0495
  • Note: Divergence between AUDUSD and NZDUSD may suggest near-term reversal

Scalp Notes: Bottom Line: Looking to see how we close out the session- 1.0285-1.0295 level is key. Note that we already rebounded off this level on Monday with the second approach here likely to charge a pivot in price. If we get the break- looking lower into 1.0215 where the next buying opportunity may come into play. The RSI signature since the Sunday open remains bearish with a resistance trigger break to offer a relief rally. Only a move passed the 60-threshold (with a break above weekly trendline resistance) suggests that the recent sell-off may have run its course.


*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break back above 1.04 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. Use this app to distinguish the various trade sessions.
