AUDUSD 2-hour

Scalping the AUDUSD Correction- Longs Favored Above 8565

Notes:AUDUSD is rebounding off the confluence of the 61.8% extension off the October highs and the 88.6% of the retracement off the November low. A trigger break in momentum on the rebound has shifted our bias to the topside near-term and we’ll look to buy pullback while above pitchfork support. Note that although the weekly opening range did break to the downside, we’ve now achieved a Thursday low and while we can’t rule out another run at support, we’ll remain constructive above today‘s low.

Bottom line: looking to buy pullback while within the confines of this pitchfork with a break of the median line likely to see accelerated gains for the Aussie. Keep in mind that the broader bias remains weighted to the downside and we’ll treat this rally as a correction for now. A move sub-8565 invalidates our bias with such a scenario targeting critical support at the 50% retracement of the advance of the 2008 low at 8541.

* 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.
