GBP/AUD Posts Key-reversal at Resistance, Watch for Channel Break

GBP/AUD Posts Key-reversal at Resistance, Watch for Channel Break

Paul Robinson, Strategist

For longer-term trading ideas, forecasts, and a library of educational content, check out the DailyFX Trading Guides.

GBP/AUD rallied yesterday into the area of resistance we noted on a trade set-up posted last month, and from that zone a solid key-reversal bar was carved out yesterday. While the reversal-bar at a big inflection point, in of itself, is reason to sit up in one’s chair, there is still a bullish channel (some might think of it as a bear-flag), running on the 4-hr time-frame.

From this seat, the rejection of resistance starts this set-up, but the break of the near-term bullish price sequence is what will really set into motion a move lower. One way to approach this is to enter a partial position around current levels or higher and place a stop above yesterday’s high by say, 20-30 pips.

Upon a break of the lower trend-line of the channel another leg of the trade could be added to form a full-sized position. Taking this approach diminishes initial risk while maximizing on a higher probability set-up after seeing the rejection turn into a break of trend.

Initially, upon confirmation, the trend-lines from August and January will be targeted, in the vicinity of 17500/450, down to this month’s swing low at 17392.

***Updates will be provided on this idea and others in the trading/technical outlook webinars held on Wednesday and Friday.
