GBP/AUD 30min

GBPAUD Weekly Opening Range Setup- Long Scalps at Risk Sub-1.92

Notes:The GBPAUD has made a well-defined weekly opening range (1.8920 – 1.9195 ) just below key resistance and we’ll look for a break of this range to validate our near-term scalp bias. Note that the pair has been trading within the confines of an ascending pitchfork formation off the monthly lows with today’s low tagging the median line bisector. The trade remains constructive while above this threshold which currently lines up with the weekly opening range low around 1.8920/36.

Bottom line: Our long scalp-bias is at risk sub-1.92 with a break below the weekly opening range targeting shorts into subsequent support targets at 1.8872, 1.8767 & the lower median-line parallel (currently around 1.8670. A breach above the weekly range highs targets channel resistance and the 1.9305/27 key resistance range. Note that this region is defined by the 2014 high and the 100% extension of the advance off the 2014 low and if breached is likely to fuel extended topside advances for the pair. Event risk for the GBPAUD is likely to be limited into the end of this week with the RBA & the BoE on tap next week. Caution is warranted during these releases as they are likely to fuel added volatility in AUD & GBP crosses.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
