AUD/CAD 30min

AUDCAD Long Scalp Bias at Risk Ahead of 9928 Resistance, BoC Meeting

Notes:The pair has continued to trade within the confines of a well-defined ascending pitchfork formation off the December lows with the rally now eyeing resistance at 9912/28. The region is defined by the 61.8% retracement of the September decline and the 23.6% retracement of the advance off the 2008 low. Note that just above this region stands the upper median line parallel (blue) and a tag of this level may be on the cards before the turnover.

Keep in mind that the broader trade remains constructive and we would be treating the proposed pullback as a correction for now. Bottom line: looking for short-triggers / sell rallies as we head up into 9912/28 with a break sub-9814 keeping the short-side scalp bias in play. A breach above 9928 invalidates the short-side with such a scenario targeting scalps into the 2013 trendline resistance, currently just above parity. Caution is warranted heading Canadian data later this week with the releases likely to fuel added volatility in CAD 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.
