  • EURAUD testing slope support- Immediate short-bias in play sub-1.4920
  • Key support 1.4681-1.4708
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels

EURAUD Daily

EUR/AUD Reversal Testing Initial Support - Bearish Sub-1.5075

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: EURAUD reversed off confluence resistance last week at the convergence of the upper median-line parallel and the 38.2% retracement of the decline off the yearly high, at 1.5148. The subsequent decline is now testing basic trendline support at the 2016 open – 1.4913 with our broader outlook weighted to the downside while bellow 1.5070/75. Note that daily momentum is also checking a basic support-trigger off the lows and a break here accompanying a move below trendline support would further reinforce the short-side bias.

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

EURAUD 30min

EUR/AUD Reversal Testing Initial Support - Bearish Sub-1.5075

Notes: The immeidate focus remains weitghed to the downside while below interim resistance at 1.4913/20 with a break lower tagreting 1.4833, the 61.8% retraceemnt at 1.4747 and key support into 1.4698-1.4703. A breach above near-term resistance opens up the possibility for a stretch back towards the upper median-line parallel before resuming lower. Such a scenario targets the 2016 low-day close at 1.4991 backed closely by 1.5028 & our bearish invalidation level at the upper median-line / 1.5070/75.

A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yeilds profit targets 37-40 pips per scalp. Added cuation is warranted heading into the Austalian employment report tomorrow night with the release likely to fuel volatility in the Aussie crosses.
