Technical Outlook

  • Third objective at 1.5127 has now been achieved (61.8% retracement of the mid-March rally)
  • Reaction at 1.5127 mark / Daily RSI hold above 40 – Suggests increased risk of near-term pullback
  • Broader bias remains bearish below 1.5310 – Breach targets resistance range 1.5407-1.5423
  • Break below today’s low (on a close basis) offers further conviction on short scalps
  • Support break eyes objectives 1.5012, 1.4920
  • Scalps look cautiously higher, medium-term corrections to be sold
  • Key Events Ahead- BoE minutes tomorrow morning

Scalp Notes: Bottom Line: Although our longer-term bias remains weighted to the downside, the pair may continue to correct higher in the near-term, offering nimble long-scalps on breaks of resistance and favorable medium-term short entries higher. Intra-day RSI has remained bearish since Monday evening in New York with a breach above trendline resistance dating back to this week’s high offering further conviction on long entries. The broader outlook remains bearish so long as price respects the 1.5310 resistance barrier.

*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break below 1.5112 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.
