EURAUD Approaches Critical Support- Longs Favored Above 1.5300

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: EURAUD is testing a critical support confluence at 1.5298-1.5325. This level is defined by the 61.8% retracement of the monthly advance, the 50% retracement of the September decline, basic trendline support extending off the December low and the operative median-line extending off the monthly highs. The immediate short-bias is at risk while above this level with a breach of the embedded descending median-line formation needed to validate a near-term reversal & possible resumption of the broader uptrend.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of Successful Traders” series.

EURAUD 30min

EURAUD Approaches Critical Support- Longs Favored Above 1.5300

Notes:The pair is trading within the confines of a well-defined descending median-line formation with the decline rebounding off key support early in New York trade. Note that intraday RSI has continued to hold 40-support and suggests that the short-side momentum is waning. A breach above 1.5469 / the upper median-line parallel would validate a near-term reversal & shifts our bias back to the topside targeting objectives at 1.5539, 1.5612 & the weekly high at 1.5690-1.5700. More significant resistance is eyed at 1.5782-1.5800.

A break below this support barrier invalidates the recovery play with such a scenario targeting the 76.4% retracement at 1.5148 & the 200DMA at 1.5048. Keep in mind this is a wider range setup with a quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yielding profit targets of 73-79pips per scalp. Event risk is light heading into the close of the week with the RBA interest rate decision & Eurozone unemployment, retail sales & PMI figures on tap early in the week next week. Added caution is warranted heading into these releases with the prints likely to fuel volatility in EUR & AUD crosses.
