Notes: An early break of the weekly and monthly opening ranges have shifted our focus to the topside on the euro with a break above the 1.3800/30 resistance range warranting long exposure. We have been targeting this key resistance zone since last year’s initial attempt back in October with the start of March trade once again highlighting this region as the monthly opening range took shape just below.

The start of April trade was very similar in that the pair was once again opening the month just below this key resistance range. A rebounded off key support at 1.37 early this week- (a level defined by the 78.6% extension off the 2014 high and Andrew’s pitchfork support)- and a subsequent breach above the monthly high / 1.3800/30 once again shifts the scalp bias to the long-side of EURUSD.

Bottom line: we’ll continue to favor long scalps while above 1.3830, with only a break below the 1.38-handle invalidating our near-term bias. Note that ongoing divergence on the intra-day chart does suggest that the pair may be a tad stretched here with the last four times the pair rallied for 4-consecutive days offering minor pullbacks before resumption of the broader trend. Our immediate focus is lower against the 1.39-handle heading into next week and we’ll look for next week’s opening range to offer further clarity on our directional bias with pullbacks likely to offer more favorable long entries. Don’t put it past this thing to make a fresh high (completing a possible 5-wave ending diagonal on the daily) before turning over.

* 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.
