EURUSD Targets 2014 Lows Ahead of ECB/NFP- Opening Ranges in Focus

Notes: The weekly & monthly opening ranges are taking shape heading into major event risk for the EURUSD later this week. The range in focus is defined by the May low and the 200DMA at 1.3885 -1.3640 and we’ll look for a break of this range to offer conviction on a near-term directional bias. Note that near-term RSI divergence heading into last month’s low has our immediate focus higher against 1.3585 with a topside trigger pending heading into the close of US trade.

The decline off the May high has been quite impressive and our base-case scenario looks for a near-term low to buy into heading deeper into June trade. The broader outlook remains weighted to the downside sub-1.3740 which represents the confluence to the 38.2% retracement off the early high and the 100DMA. Bottom line: looking for a break of the weekly opening range to validate our near-term bias heading into the start of June trade. Use caution heading into the ECB / NFPs later this week with an uptick in volatility likely offer a catalyst for the pair. 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.
