Notes: We’ve been following the progression of this trade closely in DailyFX on Demand and the initial reaction off the 1.5020/56 key support zone and a subsequent break of the weekly opening range high has shifted our scalp focus to the topside on pair. The pair now looks for convictions on the breach above channel resistance with a move past/close above 1.5313 validating the breakout.

It’s worth noting that the monthly opening range low did give out yesterday but the snap-back of the recovery back within the initial range and a breach above the weekly high has me discounting the initial break. A support RSI trigger is pending and if triggered will take us out long-exposure in the near-term. Such a scenario shifts our immediate focus lower and we’ll let the oscillator reset with a pullbacks to offer favorable long triggers. Bottom line: looking to buy dips/breaks of resistance while above 1.5020.

* 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.
