Notes: EURAUD rebounded off confluence support in U.S. trade yesterday with the rally taking out the weekly opening range highs. The immediate focus remains higher while above 1.5560 targeting 1.5725 & 1.5780 / median line resistance. A breach higher there eyes objectives at 1.5825, 1.5869 & more critical resistance into 1.5920/25 (broader bearish invalidation).
Keep in mind the medium-term outlook remains weighted to the short-side with a break of a double top formation last week targeting a stretch down towards 1.4951. That said, the pair is coming off an 8-day decline- the last two instances saw a brief interruption of the decline before resuming lower, so we’ll want to stay nimble.
A break below the low-day close at 1.5424 would be needed to put the bears back in control targeting the measured move into 1.4950 region. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 20-24 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into the Australian employment report tomorrow with the release likely to fuel added volatility in Aussie crosses. Market expectations are for a 5th consecutive increase in Australia employment with current consensus estimates calling for a gain of 9.6K jobs while the jobless rate holds at 6.2%.
