GBP/NZD 30min

GBPNZD Long Scalps at Risk Sub 2.0850- Reversal Play?

Notes:The focus is on near-term resistance just higher with divergence in the intra-day momentum signature warning of possible exhaustion. The pair has continued to trade within the confines of an ascending pitchfork off last week’s low with a breach above this resistance region risking a continuation of the broader up-trend.

Bottom line: we’ll be looking to sell rallies / short-triggers while below the highlighted resistance region just below 2.0833/48 with a break sub-2.0650 needed to reaffirm the reversal play. Such a scenario targets subsequent support objectives into the 2.0535/59 & 2.0443. More significant support rests lower at 2.0351/62.Note that this is a long-range setup with a quarter of the daily ATR yielding profit targets of 50-55 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into the end of the week with a break of the 2.0650-2.0850 range to affirm our near-term directional bias.

* 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.
