Given there are so many resistance levels, a short with a stop loss above them all looks like a good short term day trade.

The daily pivot point at 1.1374, will act as support but expectations are that this will be broken.

Targets become the next support levels, which include:

  • Daily S1 pivot point – 1.1338
  • Monthly S1 pivot point – 1.1325
  • Daily S2 pivot point – 1.1316

This day trade is following the trend and using major confluence levels as protection and so is seen as a high percentage trade.
