EUR/AUD 30min Chart

EURAUD Scalps Target 1.46- Breakout Levels Well Defined

Notes: An outside key reversal candle last month off pitchfork support shifted our bias to the long side of the EURAUD with the focus on key resistance at the 1.46-handle. This region has continued to cap the advance and remains our near-term bearish invalidation level. Note that the initial pullback off that level last month found support right at former pitchfork resistance and keeps the broader topside play in focus.

Bottom line: looking for long-triggers / buy pullbacks while above 1.4345 withonly a break sub-1.43 shifting our bias back to the short-side. A breach above of the 1.46-handle (on a close basis) offers further validation of our near-term directional bias with such a scenario eyeing subsequent topside objectives.

* 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.
