Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • Euro has now achieved the 100% Fibonacci extension taken from the April rally (1.3293)
  • Key Resistance Range 1.3290- 1.3340 -Broader bias remains bearish below this mark
  • Topside breach risks run on 1.35 (78.6% Retracement) and 1.36 (1.618 Extension)
  • Momentum remains weighted to the topside and as such, we cannot rule out another test of the highs
  • Interim support 1.3185- Key Support 1.3100- 1.3112
  • Neatly formed ascending channel formation off April Lows- channel resistance now in key target range
  • Scalps look cautiously higher, medium-term corrections to be sold below 1.3340
  • Key Events Ahead- Germany’s constitutional court holds two-day hearing on the OMT program

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 does look constructive since the Sunday open, but as we come into this key technical resistance threshold we may see momentum turn over and offer clear triggers to downside scalps. The break below 1.3185 should get this going, but look out for a possible reaction at key support 1.31- 1.3112 with a break here offering further conviction on our broader directional bias.

*We will remain flexible with our bias with a break above 1.3340 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.
