Savoy traders may have looked at a 240-minute time frame and seen the completion of a flag pattern near the lows of the pullback, as well as horizontal support, and went long. However, there are still opportunities to enter long positions for those traders who feel this pullback was just a correction, and near the beginning of a longer rising trend. EUD/AUD is currently trading near short-term horizontal resistance near 1.6650. A close above this level may give bulls an opportunity to enter, looking for a larger move on the daily timeframe. Next resistance is at the top of the flag near 1.6712 and they the recent highs at 1.6827. Their resistance (and possible initial target) is the early May highs near 1.7200. First support (and possible stop level) is at 1.6553 and then Monday’s low at 1.6485.
