EURAUD Scalp Chart

Forex_Scalping_EURAUD_Pullbacks-_Scalp_Bias_Bullish_Above_1.4480_body_Picture_1.png, Scalping EURAUD Pullbacks- Bias Bullish Above 1.4480

Notes: The weekly opening range took a while to clear, but did brake to the upside ahead of the European open with price action surpassing the previous months high for the first time since August. Our focus remains weighted to the topside with pullbacks to offer favorable long scalp entries so long as price holds above key support at 1.4475/83. A break below this level puts us neutral with only a break below 1.4420 invalidating this particular setup.

An intra-day momentum support trigger looks poised here and warns of a possible near-term correction lower and as such, we’ll look for a pullback to reset topside triggers. The RBA currency intervention remarks made overnight have helped to keep pressure on the AUDUSD, but keep an eye out tomorrow for central bank rhetoric from ECB officials and German confidence data.

* 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.
