Technical Outlook

  • Pullback now testing initial support at 7800- bullish invalidation level

AUDUSD Reversal Scalp- Shorts Favored Sub 7850

Notes: Aussie is coming off big technical resistance with the break sub-7850 shifting focus lower in the pair. The focus heading into Friday the 7800-7850 range a general short-bias in play while within the proposed medina-line formation off the highs (dashed blue) Note that the pair is not testing the median-line off the monthly lows & could produce a near-term rebound.

Bottom line: looking to sell rallies / short-triggers in momentum while below 7850 with only a breach above weekly TL resistance invalidating the short-side bias. Such a scenario eyes subsequent resistance targets into 7900/11 & the 7938 key Fibonacci level. That’s said, note interim support at 7800 with a break below the proposed median line opening eyeing scalp targets at 7750/62 & the 77-handle. Ultimately a pull into this region would have us looking for long triggers. Caution is warranted heading into tomorrow’s US data print with the final release of the Q4 GDP data likely to fuel added volatile in USD crosses. A quarter of the Daily ATR yield profit targets of 24-27 pips per scalp.

* 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.
