EURNZD Scalp Chart

Notes: The focus for this pair has been the response to near-term support at 1.6220 and while our broader view remains weighted to the topside, we cannot rule out another low to test trendline support dating back to April. Nevertheless the levels are set and in the near-term we look for a break above 1.6355 for conviction on long exposure. A break below 1.6268 puts us neutral with a move sub-1.6220 eyeing key support at 1.6155/78. Look for a breakout in the momentum signature to offer further validation our scalp bias as the oscillator continues to consolidate. Bottom line: looking to buy dips/breaks of resistance while above 1.6153.

Note that the pair has a rather healthy ATR and with the ECB monthly report on tap tomorrow, the new batch of central bank rhetoric may spark further Euro volatility. We’ll be following the progress of this trade and more in DailyFX on Demand.
