AUDCAD Scalp Chart

Notes: This has been an extremely popular setup in DailyFX on Demand as the pair traded into key resistance this morning. Long exposure was warranted into this threshold between 9922 – 9941 which represents a host of longer & medium-term Fibonacci ratios as well as current operative channel resistance dating back to August. This level should not be underestimates as it also represents a multiyear pivot in price dating back to the 2009 highs. While the critical nature of this threshold has us looking lower in the near-term, we will remain nimble noting that shorts scalps will be counter-trend until further evidence supports the notion that an interim high may be in place.

* 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.
