GBP/NZD 30min

GBPNZD Opening Range in Focus Ahead of BoE- 1.9722 Key Support

Notes:The range in focus here is 1.9722- 2.0060 as the weekly/monthly opening range takes shape just above key near-term support. The 1.9722/32 support range is defined by the 88.6% retracement of the late-November rally, the 100% extension off the 2014 high, the 78.6% retracement of the September rally and trendline support off the 2013 low.

The trade may not be quiet ready yet, but we’ll be tracking the pair for a break of this range with our base-case scenario favoring shorts while below TL resistance off the December high. Caution is warranted heading into the later part of the week with UK data likely to fuel added volatility in Sterling based crosses.

* 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.
