NZDJPY 30min Chart

NZDJPY Reversal Underway- Scalps Target Key Support at 88.20

Notes: A break of the weekly opening range low yesterday shifted the bias to the short-side of NZDUSD with the resulting sell-off now pressing below the July opening range low a t 88.67. The pair rebounded off of near-term support today at 88.20/34 and shorts into this region should be treated with caution until the break.

Bottom line: look to sell rallies while below 89.15 (weekly ORL/61.8% retracement) with a break below 88.20 targeting subsequent support targets into 87.30. A breach above 89.15 puts us neutral with only a breach above 89.55 shifting our focus back to the 2014 high at 89.90 and beyond.

Caution is warranted as we head into event risk next week with the RBNZ rate decision and trade balance coming out on the on the same day as the Japanese trade balance figures. 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.
