USD/NOK Bullish Outside Day Offers Compelling Risk/Reward Trade
Eur/SekThe latest break and close back above 8.85 is a significant short-term development as it likely signals a base for now. This market has been very well offered of late and any upside moves beyond 9.00 should be welcome as a healthy corrective bounce. Current intraday setbacks should now be well supported ahead of 8.80. A close above 9.00 could now open more upside towards 9.40 over the medium term.
Eur/NokWe are finally starting to see the formation of a potential base in the cross after the market has once again stalling out by the 7.70 handle. The latest break back above 7.80 confirms and exposes 8.10 further up. Only a weekly close back below 7.70 ultimately negates recovery, while intraday setbacks should be well supported ahead of 7.80. Above 7.98 should accelerate.
Usd/SekRemains under some intense pressure with the market trading at fresh yearly and multi-week lows by 6.25. However, with daily studies looking stretched, there is the risk for some corrective upside ahead. A key bullish reversal day on Tuesday could very well act as the catalyst for such a base, but ultimately, the market will need to break back above 6.52 to officially alleviate downside pressures. Still, a long position by 6.30 could offer a solid risk/reward long opportunity.
Usd/Nok The market finally seems to have found some decent support by the recently established fresh multi-month lows ahead of 5.50, and could be in the process of carving out a short-term bottom at a minimum. Another successful defense ahead of 5.50 on Tuesday and bullish outside day reaffirms basing bias and we now look for the formation of a major double bottom to be triggered on a break back above neckline resistance at 5.72 over the coming days. Above the neckline will then expose 5.90 further up. Back below 5.50 negates.
