CADJPY 30min

CADJPY Short Scalps Favored Sub-99.00 on Failed Gap Fill

Notes: The CADJPY failed to fill the Sunday open gap before breaking below confluence Fibonacci support at 98.80/90. The focus remains weighted to the short-side while below this level with today’s decline finding support at the lower median-line parallel, just above the 38.2% retracement at 97.53. Momentum divergence into the lows leaves the pair at risk for a rebound near-term, but we’ll be looking to sell rallies / support triggers while below the ML off the highs.

Bottom line: looking for this rebound to offer short entries with a break below near-term support targeting subsequent objectives at 96.80 & 96.42. A breach above the 99-handle invalidates our near-term outlook with such a scenario targeting the upper median-line parallel backed by the uncovered gap at 100.48. A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 21-24pips per scalp.
