GBPAUD Technical Analysis
Following the extensive weakness in EURUSD and the great demand for the Aussie, a technical entry has presented itself on the weekly chart. We have already released a trade alert in your YouTube Channel in AUDCHF but favour to increase the exposure to the Aussie in GBPAUD.
To recap, the Sterling was mutilated in the Forex market as GBP exposure was reduced in the ETF market. The Australian dollar enjoyed decent FX flows from the European Central Bank (ECB) decision to slash rates and introduce a new QE program where further details are expected on 2 October, 2014. We have strategically entered a short trade into EURCHF as we believe the it will be pressurised to re-test the 1.2000 floor that was set by the Swiss National Bank (SNB) and even below.
The market is still digesting today’s news and we have little time to release our latest trade alert. GBPAUD weekly chart shows top Head-And-Shoulders (H&S) which we have overlooked. The heavy weakness accelerated as the price breached the neckline, taking GBPAUD to current levels.
