NZD/JPY 30min

Scalping NZD/JPY Breakdown- Shorts Favored Sub 90.00

Notes:The pair has continued to trade within the confines of a well-defined descending pitchfork formation off the late-December high with today’s decline breaking through key near-term support at 89.91- 90.02. This region is defined by the weekly opening range, the median-line bisector and the confluence of the 100% extension off the 2014 high & the 38.2% retracement of the October advance. We will reserve this zone as our bearish invalidation level with our immediate focus on a push lower into the lower median-line parallel at 88.30/65.

Bottom line: looking to sell rallies / short triggers while below the 90-handle with a break sub-88.30 targeting more significant support at the 84.40/55 objective. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) suggests profit targets of 26-29pips per scalp. Event risk for the pair is limited heading into the end of the week but we’ll be on the lookout for the RBNZ interest rate decision on

* 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.
