Notes: AUDUSD is coming into a major inflection point at the confluence of the 61.8% extension of the advance off the January low, the 200-DMA and trendline resistance dating back to April 2013. The weekly opening range is forming just below and we’ll look for a definitive break of this range to validate our neat-term scalp bias. We remain constructive above the Sunday low with only a move below last week’s low invalidating the broader topside bias noted on our last AUDUSD setup published on March 12th.

* 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.
