GBP/NZD 30min

GBPNZD Responds to Key Support- Scalps Target Resistance at 2.0550

Notes: A momentum reversal / European opening range break yesterday shifted the scalp bias back to the topside after tagging key support earlier in the week. The rebound has encountered resistance at a Fibonacci confluence at 2.0549-53 with a breach above needed to keep our bullish scalp bias in play. Such a scenario targets more significant resistance at 2.0626/39 and we will reserve this objective as our near-term bearish invalidation level (possible short entry). Subsequent resistance targets are eyed at 2.0699 & 2.0786-2.0802.

We’ll reserve today’s low as our near-term bullish invalidation level with a break below shifting the focus back into key long-term support just ahead of 2.03. A quarter of the daily ATR yields profit targets of 60-65 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into UK event risk tomorrow morning with retail sales data likely to fuel added volatility in Sterling crosses. We’ll also be looking for a possible play in the GBPJPY setup noted yesterday.

* 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.
