EURAUD Breakout Seeks Validation- Scalps Eye 1.4340 Resistance

EURAUD Breakout Seeks Validation- Scalps Eye 1.4340 Resistance

Michael Boutros, Strategist

Talking Points

  • Trendline break looks for validation with breach above Fibonacci resistance
  • AUDUSD price action signals risk of correction- Constructive for EUR/AUD
  • Bias bullish above 1.4140 – Long conviction above 1.4340

EURAUD Scalp Chart

Notes: Similar to the EURNZD setup noted in yesterday’s report, but not with quit as much conviction. A bullish weekly opening-range break and subsequent breach above confluence resistance (1.4226-1.4238) warranted long exposure after seven consecutive daily attempts at breaking below the 1.4122/40 support structure failed. The rally encountered Fibonacci resistance at 1.4336/40, a region that has served as a clear pivot dating back to early September. Momentum seems uninspiring in the near-term with pullbacks likely to offer favorable long entries and clearer topside triggers. A breach above the highs puts the larger channel-break back on track with such a scenario eying objectives at 1.4390 and 1.4465.

Slight bullish divergence on the daily chart has been identified and we’ll continue to target topside scalps. Only a break and close below 1.42 invalidates our scalp bias while a move below 1.4140 would negate our broader directional bias; such a scenario targets key longer-term Fibonacci support at 1.4041 and the 38.2% retracement of the 2013 range at 1.3955.

Note that near-term price action suggests that the AUSDUSD may be ready to correct lower as well after pressing into 4-month highs before breaking below the weekly range low. As such we will be cautiously watching price action develop for further evidence 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.
