Forex_AUDNZD_Target_Key_Resistance-_Bullish_Scalp_Bias_at_Risk_Sub_1.09_body_Picture_1.png, AUDNZD Target Key Resistance- Bullish Scalp Bias at Risk Sub 1.09Notes: Although the broader bias remains weighted to the downside, the rebound off the January low and daily RSI divergence has kept our focus on the long side of AUDNZD in the near-term. The pair is now eyeing key resistance at 1.09 and if breached, would suggest that a more significant low may have been put in last month.

That said, the weekly and monthly opening ranges will be paramount here and we’ll continue to favor long exposure while above 1.0772. This level is defined by the February opening range low and the 38.2% retracement of the advance off the January low. Should this level be compromised, look for a break below the 1.0734 pivot to put the larger downtrend back into focus. Bottom line: our immediate focus is on a conviction break of the weekly/monthly opening range with our broader bias weighed to the downside below 1.1200.

Be on the lookout for event risk tomorrow out of Australia and New Zealand with the Aussie employment report taking central focus tomorrow evening. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week in DailyFX on Demand.
