The British-Australian currency pair has been moving in an uptrend since the beginning of this year, which has taken the shape of a channel since June.

  • Inside bar on annual maximums
  • downward divergence suggests declines
  • price stopped on confluence of supports
GBPAUD H4 – price dropped out from the inside bar

After overcoming the level of 1.8530 the pace of growth gained momentum and during the last month the price rose to 1.8970. After reaching the maximum of this year the price is falling and August opens with a large downward candle.

On the H4 chart we can see that an inside bar formation appeared, formed by the 4-hour candle from July 30. Today we observe the breakout from this formation downwards, accompanied by a downward divergence.

GBPAUD H1 – price stopped on the confluence of supports

On the H1 chart the demand zone together with the resistance of the mentioned channel forms a point of confluence of support . If the price breaks through this level (1.8850), we may witness another series of declines to the next demand zone, starting at 1.8725.

It is also worth watching the daily chart where MACD is upward (green), but if it enters the downward phase – it would be a good support for the downward scenario.

Tuesday morning ( 5:30 GMT+1) we will know the RBA interest rates decision – it can have influence on AUD and this pair, so trade safely.
