I've been tracking this cross down ever since I prematurely exited a great Short.  I prefer not to trade these non USD markets as my personal view is that the USD is a better cross to take with most other currencies but when the derivative crosses get to major turning point then they get interesting for me.


The big picture (monthly/weekly) is not clear to me, except that this cross has come down off 30000 in a strong bear move in 2 parts and then retraced in an A-B-C to Aug 2015 highs only to drop again.  I'm sot sure if the market is now in another bear move or something more complex but certainly the Bear has been in charge since Aug 2015.


Now the market has hit strong support and either an EW 1-3 or A-B-C and there is strong Pos Mom Div on the Daily but not the Weekly charts.  This suggests a Wave 3-4 retrace at least.


On the Hourly we have had an ending Triangle break after a W5 termination off that strong resistance.  The Triangle is not perfect but valid I think, when taken with everything else.  There is also strong Pos Mom Div on the hourly now and a retrace to the Triangle (which is also small 38% fib and short term support/resistance) followed by a bounce away would confirm a rally is on for me and it could run all the way to the upper Daily Tramline, which is well over 1000 points!


I'll be looking to go long on any touch in the area of the triangle line.  Anyone looking at this and if so what do you see?

Hi, I'll just share my analysis with you to give a perspective on the pair...

On weekly it broke bearish and is currently reacting to weekly s/r around 18,300 or so...



On the monthly we are uptrending and the level has acted as resistance in the past also. The level clusters with 50% and also 78% if u care to use that in clusters


Apologies for formatting (first post)

There are 2 possible reactionary levels I see on the daily, one where price is at the moment and one slightly above around 18800.

Coming down the timeframes to look at the 4hrly i see the support and a new higher high. Essentially if uptrending I would lean toward a retest of the 18500 level which is showing as 4hrly S/R perhaps looking intraday toward18800 level.

gbpaud4hr.JPGThe hourly is slightly messier, but shows that it could retest to the 18600 area.

gbpaud1hr.JPGFor this pair intraday I'm probably just looking to see what price does for now, as it may consolidate around its current level perhaps coming down to 18600 or so or pullback and conitnue to trend up . The current level is also at the daily oblique resistance trendline shown in red in next chart which also has historical significance, I might expect some pullback at this level but will certainly be stalking the pair and noting a break of the trendlines. Some LTF intraday opportunities for sure, with medium to higher timeframes leaning to a possible bullish break if the medium term timeframes push through the current resistance levels indicated. Arguably the daily trend could be considered broken but its current chanel is yet to be broken out of on the daily. 

Looking for bullish opportuinities or if failing to break bearish below 18300.


Hope that helps...

HI Philstrading,


I have been tracking, but not trading, this cross for some time but missed the Triangle break and kiss back because it was in the early hours UK time and I wasn't confident enough to leave a stop in order in play.  Then I hoped for another quick kiss back but the market rallied away, c'est la vie I guess...  Just now I am seeing a retrace in action and am targeting a retrace to near the Fib 50% before the rally resumes.  I'd prefer the 62% but this would negate the move altogether.  A retrace fits with my other analysis of GBP and AUD vs USD so I'm watching and waiting for the price to pull back to the right level before venturing a Long.

I've been tracking this one for quite a while and it never so much as twitched on its journey up to the top of the Daily chart channel, I guess because the respective USD crosses are stronger.  Still it does now look like there might be a twitch with the upper tramline touched and price repulsed.  There is also a possible ending Triangle that has just been breached with a small curl back so far and a **** of a lot of Neg Mom Div about on all timeframes.


Time for a cheeky short?

Fun day, got a good boost off the Aus job numbers and UK retail sales this morning and a 80 point initial lift on the BoE rate decision taking it to 18400 and then immediately took it off again. So still tangled around the 18300 though expectations remain for a May rate rise so still cause for optimism.

Updating this thread, so we have been tracking this since before the break out past 18,000 in mid March, the quick run up to 18,300 got caught up at prior support turned resistance level and it has been running sideways since. IG made this pair the 'Trade of the Week' long on Monday so that has hampered it's progress :smileysurprised:  but is coiling nicely and still expecting further upside.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
