EURJPY Key Outside Reversal Shifts Near-term Focus Higher

Notes: The EURJPY rebounded off the 100% extension taken from the decline off the December 2014 high with today’s subsequent outside reversal day shifting our near-term focus back to the topside. A breach above the weekly opening range is needed to validate the scalp bias with such a scenario eyeing subsequent resistance targets. Note that the broader outlook remains weighted to the downside and we would inevitably look to sell this advance- a rally into 137.67 would have us looking for short-triggers.

Bottom line: we’ll favor buying dips while above the 135.10 with a breach above the weekly opening range high offering further conviction on long-scalps. A break below today’s low invalidates the setup and puts the broader short-bias back into play. Event risk is limited heading into the end of the week with next week’s opening range likely to offer further clarity on our near-term directional bias.Follow the progress of trade setups like these 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.
