EURUSD 30min Chart

EURUSD July Opening Range Play- Shorts Favored Sub 1.37

Notes: The July opening range is taking shape with the reversal off key resistance early in the month keeping our focus weighted to the downside while below 1.3673/94. This level is defined not only by the monthly range high, but also represents an array of longer-term moving averages and Fibonacci levels including a 100% extension off the June lows. This suggests that the rally into the late June high was corrective in nature and we look to re-establish short-side exposure while below this threshold.

Bottom line: the pair has come into near-term support at 61.8% retracement of the advance off the June low at 1.3577 and we look for this rebound to offer favorable short entries below 1.3640. A breach above this level looks for a test of the monthly opening range high set last week at 1.3694 with only a move surpassing this threshold invalidating our broader outlook.

The range is rather right with a daily ATR of only 51 pips, so we’ll look to stay nimble and play the ranges while noting event risk later this week with release of the FOMC minutes and German inflation data likely to fuel added volatility in USD and EUR crosses. 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.
