Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • All three objectives noted in last week’s AUDUSD scalp report have now been achieved
  • 7-days of consecutive declines for first time since December 05’- (Note: That year saw 8 days down followed by massive reversal which pared nearly the entire decline)
  • Daily RSI now sitting (matches) lowest level since May 2012 (right before the rally to 1.06)
  • Broader bias remains bearish- Risk of near-term correction has us looking higher over next day or so
  • Daily resistance at 9980, 1.0025 bearish invalidation point
  • Break below 9880 threshold looks for 2011 trendline support (currently around 9860)
  • Medium-term objectives at 9805 (Key Fib confluence) and 9700 (88.6% Fib retracement)

AUDUSD Scalp Chart

Scalp Notes: Bottom Line: Although our longer-term bias remains weighted to the downside, the conditions here are set for a possible relief rally which may offer more favorable short entries higher. Our immediate bias therefore shifts cautiously to the long-side above 9880. Note that a break below this level may be required to see a test of the multiyear-long trendline support dating back to the 2011 lows with a rejection here and a move back above 9880 offering further conviction on a near-term bounce. Broader bias remains bearish so long as the 1.0025 resistance threshold is respected.

*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break below the 9960-80 range eyeing subsequent support 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.
