Trade Recommendation: EURAUD

The bias has turned to the downside for the short term with the price trading below the Daily Pivot Range (blue dots), as well as the 3 Day Rolling Pivot Range (RPR, green dots). These levels provide the near term key resistance range.

With the Daily Pivot Moving Averages (red,yellow, white lines) turning downward this is further confirmation of the bearish bias. We need to see further confirmation with the price trading below the current swing low of 1.56518.

The action to take is to place a sell stop entry order to enter the market short as the price breaks below the recent low. Place the stop loss just above the swing high level at the Daily Pivot Range low.

Note: If triggered, look for the trade to play out over a period of 24-36 hours and if no significant move after 3 hours, exit the trade.

Entry Price: 1.5651
Stop Loss: 1.5697
Profit Targets: Grab some quick profits at the First profit target 1.5610. Second profit target is 1.5556. Once first profit target is reached, bring stop loss to breakeven, then trail a stop loss on remaining position 15-20 pips behind to safeguard profits or until second profit target is hit.
