Scalp Notes: Bottom Line: 1.05 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 rally may have run its course.

*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break above 1.05 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.
