Scalp Webinar: NFP Fails to Spur USD Breakout- June Range Remains Key

Talking Points


Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • USDOLLAR sets initial June opening range at 11880-12037
  • Bias remains bearish while within this formation (~1200)
  • Break below 11880 targets support objectives at the ML / 11839/43, backed by 11790
  • Daily RSI reversal at 60- (bearish) – now testing support at 50- break would be bearish
  • Key Event Risk Ahead: US Advanced Retail Sales on Thursday & University of Michigan Confidence on Friday.


Notes: Aussie starts the week just above key support at 7590-7604 with momentum continuing to hover just above 40. Look for resistance at the ML extending off the April / May highs (~7700) with a breach above keeping the near-term focus higher towards 7737 & the 78-handle. A break sub-7590 puts the short-side back into play targeting objectives at the yearly low, the 61.8% extension off the highs at 7469 and the median-line confluence down into 7360. Keep in mind we have employment data out of Australia on Thursday.
