GBPAUD Putting in a High or Time to Buy?

Notes: Another failed attempt to breach above a long-dated sliding parallel off the February highs leaves the near-term focus weighted to the short-side for the GBPAUD. A slope identified off the July high has continued to define price action with precision and the risk remains weighted to the downside while below the yearly high-day close at 2.1376. We’ll be looking to sell rallies / support triggers while within this formation with a breach above 2.1500 needed to put the long bias into play (bearish invalidation)

Interim support is eyed into 2.1122 with a break lower targeting 1.1012 and the weekly opening range lows into 2.0872. Note that a quarter of the daily ATR is a bit wider here with profit targets of 60-64pips per scalp. Event risk is limited out of the UK & Australia into the close of the week so we’ll keep a close eye on key developments coming out of the Asia/Pacific region as it continues to drive global market sentiment.
