Scalp Notes: Although out longer-term bias remains weighted to the topside, we are looking for a new low to offer favorable long entries. Weekly opening range break suggests correction has a bit further to go- However with intra-day RSI holding in oversold territory, we’ll wait for the trigger to reset with near-term rallies to be sold. (For more aggressive traders a topside RSI trigger breach could offer near-term longs into the subsequent resistance target.) A break back within the initial weekly opening range puts us neutral pending an RSI short trigger or breach above our bearish invalidation point at 9530. Such a scenario puts our longer-term targets back in view. Bottom line: looking for a new low to establish long position as the pair continues to consolidate into the apex of a multi-year triangle consolidation.

* 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.
