GBP/AUD 30min

GBPAUD Scalps Target 1.9850 Resistance Ahead of UK & AUS Data

Notes:The focus is on near-term resistance just higher with divergence in the intra-day momentum signature warning of possible exhaustion. The pair has continued to trade within the confines of a descending pitchfork off the yearly highs with a breach above this resistance region risking a continuation of the broader up-trend.

Bottom line: we’ll be looking to sell rallies / short-triggers while below the highlighted resistance region just below 1.9850 with a break sub-1.9630/45 needed to reaffirm the reversal play. Such a scenario targets subsequent support objectives into the 1.95-handle & the weekly ORL at 1.9450. More significant support rests lower at 1.9327/63.Note that this is a long-range setup with a quarter of the daily ATR yielding profit targets of 49-53 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into the UK & Aussie data tomorrow with the releases likely to fuel added volatility in GBP & AUD 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.
