EURAUD Scalp Chart

EURAUD at Fresh 2014 Lows- Reversal Risk High Above 1.4420/40

Notes: EURAUD has now come into near-term support at a confluence of Fibonacci extensions and retracements that range from 1.4418 into 1.4440. Although our broader outlook remains weighted to the short-side, intra-day RSI divergence and proximity to this key support (our bullish invalidation level) leaves the pair vulnerable for a near-term rebound higher.

Bottom line: our immediate focus remains against the 1.4420/40 support zone heading into the close of the week. Note that a break / close below this mark invalidates our scalp bias with such a scenario eyeing head and shoulders objective support targets into the 1.43-handle. Use caution heading into the Australian employment report and Chinese retail sales data later this week with the releases likely to fuel added volatility in the pair.
