EURAUD Risks Near-Term Reversal Heading Into H&S Target, Key Support

Notes: The EURAUD has achieved two of three support objectives noted on the June 10th report and now looks for completion of the broader head & shoulders formation break seen in March. Although the pair continues to trade within the confines of a well-defined descending channel formation off the yearly high, building momentum divergence on daily & intra-day charts suggest this rebound off a long-dated 38.2% retracement at 1.4216 may materialize into a more significant correction.

We’ll remain cautiously constructive heading into the close of the month and while I wouldn’t put it passed the pair to dip into our final unfilled support objective at 1.4138/66 before reversing, we’ll broadly look to buy dips into this region. Bottom line: Look for favorable long entries over the next few days while above 1.4140/66 with a breach above 1.44 offering further conviction on a near-term reversal. A break / close below key support invalidates this particular setup with such a scenario putting the larger trend off the yearly high back into focus eyeing initial targets at the November low (1.4050).

Event risk is rather limited heading into the close of the month with Australian building permits & Eurozone confidence data out on July 30th. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week with DailyFX on Demand.
