GBPAUD due a rally?


Recommended Posts

Following on from my thoughts on commodities and AUD plus with a ST bullish stance on GBP it seems sensible to look at GBPAUD.  This market had a great Short set up pre Brexit, which I was in but alas the Brexit margin increase fiasco put paid to a very good position...


After such a persistent Bear move it might be stupid to suggest a Long but all markets need a retrace to recharge the dominant move (so to speak).  GBPAUD seems to have hit a decent support zone for such a retrace and now I have a break up through short term resistance.  I can't rule out a ST retrace back down as GBPUSD is also doing but AUD is weak just now and this cross can keep running with little pause.  A confirmed break sets up an EWT 1-2 retrace before a resumption of the long term trend, which indicates a rally to the post Brexit price gap resistance zone.


I also attach the Monthly chart for perspective although it is not particularly useful owing to insufficient history (IG can you do something about that?).


Wild!  Just as I was writing AUDUSD took off down!

Interesting set up on the GBPAUD hourly chart.  I have multiple Long trading trigger points since the low and another forming in an ascending Triangle fashion.  A breakout of this formation is likely to be strong so Long stop in above is my play.  My longer term time frames (inc the Daily previously posted) indicate a target in the 18000 area before a conclusion to what is likely to be a retrace and then followed by a strong drop in line with a GBPUSD drop.

GBPAUD retrace rally is well underway, I have been Long on this since the break of the previous down-sloping tramline and now there is a possible breakout above the upper line that has provided multiple touch resistance since it was broken through to the down side on 1 July.  As such a confirmed break with a close above, coupled with GBPUSD strength and AUDUSD sluggishness suggests my forecast for a retrace to the Brexit gap may well be on.  I am seeing a similar target on all the GBP crosses (GBPUSD and GBPJPY at least) plus EURUSD.


Perhaps the attainment of the gap closure will also be a harbinger for wider USD rally?  One to watch.

With GBPUSD apparently trying to rally and EURUSD and USDJPY possibly joining in a general USD weakness seems to be pervading the FX markets just now.  It remains to be seen whether AUSUSD rallies or hits resistance and drops away (see separate post).  The latter would bring up the possibility or a GBPAUD rally (part 2), which of course could still happen if AUDUSD rallies and GBPUSD rallies harder.


GBPAUD broke through a Daily chart resistance tramline recently and is now retesting it.  If this holds then a rally up towards the post Brexit price gap is still on.  For my money a failed test of the Fib 76% and tramline on the AUSUSD would be ideal to support this.  It is going to be an interesting Triad to watch over the coming days.

    • Copper Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Zigzag Position -Wave 4 Direction - Wave 5 Details - It appears wave 4 has been completed but we need a confirmation above 4.686 with an impulse break. Otherwise, the price could make a minor corrective bounce below the confirmation level and falter further. Copper prices are reversing upward, recovering from the sell-off that began on May 20, 2024. The broader picture indicates that this sell-off is a correction within the larger bullish cycle that started in October 2023. The current recovery, which began on June 18, 2024, has the potential to rise further and possibly break the high from May 20, 2024.   Daily Chart Analysis: On the daily chart, a bullish impulse wave has been developing since July 2022, when copper hit a low of $3.13. This impulse wave is currently in wave (3). Specifically, wave 3 of (3) concluded at $5.192, and wave 4 of (3) likely ended at the low on June 18. We can anticipate copper prices to recover into wave 5, completing wave (3) above $5.192 before the next pullback for wave (4) occurs. The invalidation level for this wave count is at $3.975.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, wave 4 appears as a double zigzag pattern. Wave a (circled) of 4 ended with an impulse structure, while wave c (circled) concluded with an ending diagonal pattern. A bullish confirmation would occur if the price breaches $4.686 with an impulse wave, indicating a strong likelihood of further recovery.   Alternative Scenario: Alternatively, the decline on the H4 chart could be interpreted as an impulse wave. If this is the case, the current bullish recovery remains valid. However, we would not see a breach of the $5.192 high before the price resumes its downward movement to break below $4.379. Therefore, in both scenarios, copper prices are expected to maintain their current recovery to at least the $4.69-$4.788 range in the near term.   Summary: Copper has been recovering from the sell-off that started on May 20, 2024, within the context of a larger bullish cycle that began in October 2023. On the daily chart, a bullish impulse wave has been forming since July 2022, with wave 3 of (3) completing at $5.192 and wave 4 of (3) likely concluding at the June 18 low. The price is expected to rise into wave 5, surpassing $5.192 before the next pullback for wave (4). The invalidation level for this wave count is at $3.975.   On the H4 chart, wave 4 is identified as a double zigzag, with wave a (circled) ending in an impulse and wave c (circled) in an ending diagonal. Bullish confirmation would be a break above $4.686 with an impulse wave, signaling further recovery.    Alternatively, if the decline is an impulse wave, the bullish recovery is still valid but without breaching $5.192 before dropping below $4.379. In either scenario, copper prices are likely to continue recovering to the $4.69-$4.788 range in the near term. Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
