Scalping GBPAUD Pullback- Targets in View Ahead of Aussie Data, BoE

Notes: GBPAUD is trading within the confines of a descending median-line formation off the weekly highs with the risk for a deeper pullback before resumption of the broader up-trend. The pair is now testing confluence resistance into the 2.19-handle with subsequent resistance seen at 2.1933. We’ll reserve the 2.1975/90 region as our bearish invalidation level (looking for short triggers while below this region) with a breach above targeting the weekly highs and beyond.

Interim support targets are eyed at 2.1753 backed by key near-term confluence support at 2.1668/80. A break below this level keeps the immediate short-bias in play targeting 2.1609 & our broader bullish invalidation level down at 2.1420-2.1527. Note that this is a wide-range scalp with a quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yielding profit targets of 68-71 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted over the next 48 hours with employment data out of Australian, inflation data out of China and the BoE interest rate decision likely to fuel added volatility in the Sterling & Aussie crosses.
