ChartCreated Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • EURUSD Objectives at 1.2877/88 triggered earlier in the month- Rebound failed at April high
  • Near-term may see period of consolidation before resumption of broader downtrend
  • Key Daily Support still at 1.30-handle- Scalp bias bullish above this mark
  • Break sub 1.30 targets objectives at 1.2877/88 and 1.2750
  • RSI holding 50 support- Still some upside possible here before encountering trendline resistance
  • Break above 1.31 (with RSI 60-Breach) targets objectives at 1.32, 1.3274, and 1.3340 (Key)
  • Key Events Ahead: Fed’s Beige Book, Humphrey-Hawkins Testimony on Wednesday & Thursday

Scalp Notes: Although our longer-term bias remains weighted to the downside, this key support barrier may offer near-term scalps into resistance levels with a breach above 1.3085 targeting subsequent topside targets. It’s important to note that the RSI signature has been rather bearish since the start of Sunday trade with only a breach above the 60-threshold (with price action north of 1.3085) offering conviction on near-term long scalps. Such a scenario looks for new highs with longs into the monthly high warranted. Break back below 1.30 puts our subsequent support objectives into play. Bottom Line: looking for a break of the weekly opening range (1.2992- 1.3082) to offer further conviction on a near-term directional bias. Longer-term bias remains bearish below 1.3340.

* 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.
