AUD/NZD 30min Chart

AUDNZD Scalps Targets Key Inflection Range - 1.1020 Critical Support

Notes: The AUDNZD has been trading within a well-defined Andrew’s Pitchfork off the September high with the weekly opening range taking shape just above a key infection region at 1.2023/35. Note that within this support zone rests the bisector of a broader ascending pitchfork formation off the 2014 low and as such, we will reserve this threshold as our near-term bullish invalidation level. The Sunday gap-open has been filled and the play here is a break out of the gap-range which is define by 1.1022 – 1.1100.

Bottom line: looking for a break of the weekly opening range with our near-term bias favoring buying dips while above 1.1022/35 with a breach above 1.11 offering further conviction for long-side exposure. Note that the average true range has remained rather tight here so we’ll increase the profit targets to 1/3 of the daily ATR- this puts us at approximately 22pips per scalp.Event risk is limited heading into the weekend and we’ll look for broader market sentiment for guidance.

* 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.
