An interesting Triad showing a contrarian signal? GBP/AUD/USD

Looking at Triads is interesting but difficult.  It is easy to get knocked out of a good set up in one pair because you can't see how all 3 fit together.

 

Looking at GBP/USD (see separate post for more detail) I see the start of a contrarian turn into a Wave C of a larger retrace that could head back up to the post Brexit price gap resistance level at a minimum (maybe higher).

 

Looking at GBP/AUD I see a similar set up to GBPUSD with a turn back up in retrace but this time it would be a complete retrace rather than just a Wave C and again could make it all the wave back up to the post Brexit price gap.

 

In order for GBP/AUD to make such a strong move AUD/USD really needs to drop and so far it has been looking like it will rally up to the Weekly down-sloping tramline and Fib 50% (of course the junction of these two is now past...).  However with a possible up-sloping tramline break and RSI/Stochastic looking bearish we could see a drop on this market.  With Non Commercials COT increasingly Bullish but not over cooked this pair is my least strong so I would need to see a confirmed break lower for this Triad set up to work.

 

I would love to hear if anyone else is looking at this Triad and especially thoughts on AUDUSD.

All I know roughly about currency triads, is that if you have €-£  €-$ & £-$ you will get similar trends with different driving forces. However I do see the AUD$ possibly starting soon the final WC of C within  the ABC that has been occurring since February. Although I think my 4hourly chart has a slight different layout to yours in that I think that the overall wave C is a complex double zigzag. , I do however think we are on similar guidelines. The Weekly T-LINE is what be interesting to watch, once it hits it then downside will really prevail, hopefully.AUD USD DAILY.png

Yeah that is my only worry on AUDUSD,  that the A-B-C retrace is not yet completed.  My Shorts are at B/E so free bet and I wouldn't be interested in a Long from here so worst case I get stopped out for no loss and wait in the tall grass for that A-B-C to conclude, probably at the Fib 50% (weekly/Monthly chart).  It is still possible for GBPAUS to rally with AUDUSD also rallying if GBPUSD rallies harder.  Next week should give some indications.  If AUDUSD doesn't rally then the drop is on.  I would say that a fall below the 7600 and then through 7580 is indicative that my first scenario is more likely.  A strong rally back up through the Daily up-sloping tramline is indicative that the A-B-C has yet to conclude.

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
