AUDCAD Scalp Chart

Forex_AUDCAD_Scalps_Target_Key_Support-_Bias_Bearish_below_9746_body_Picture_1.png, AUDCAD Scalps Target Key Support- Bias Bearish below 9746Notes: The reversal off the 99-handle early this week has put the broader trend back into focus and although the outlook remains weighted to the downside, our immediate focus is the rebound off the 9580/98 support zone. A pending trigger break in momentum offers conviction on near-term long exposure against the weekly low, but traders should remain nimble. Medium-term players are looking for short entries higher up with a rally into subsequent resistance targets with RSI conviction offering favorable short entries.

Bottom line: looking for a lower higher to get back on the short-side, with our immediate focus higher heading into the week’s end. Look for the momentum signature to reset, offering more suitable short-triggers. We’ll be following the progress of this trade and more in DailyFX on Demand.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
