NZDJPY Scalp Chart

NZDJPY Monthly Opening Range Trade- Bearish Sub 89.50

Notes: The monthly opening range is set just below the 89.28/50 resistance range and our focus is lower on the NZDJPY while below this threshold. Although the initial weekly opening range came in at 88.13, we’ve amended the level to include a Fibonacci confluence zone just lower at 87.93 - 88.01. We will reserve this level as our near-term bullish invalidation with a break below warranting short exposure into subsequent support targets.

Bottom line: looking to sell rallies with RSI conviction while below 89.28 with only a breach above 89.50 invalidating our near-term bias. A daily close sub 87.61 would validate the monthly range break with such a scenario eyeing subsequent targets into key support at 86.60. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week with DailyFX on Demand.

* 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.
