Forex Technical Update



The GBP/AUD failed to sustain a break below range support seen in the 4H chart at 1.5310. After consolidating around 1.53, the market rallied, stalled under 1.55, and in the 4/19 European-US session, is breaking above 1.55 and consolidation resistance. The moving averages are re-aligning themselves to show a bearish market (with 200 SMA at the bottom, than 100, 55, 21, and 8 going up).

If this is a true breakout, and there is a throwback, the 1.54-1.5425 area should provide support.


The daily chart shows the target for the current breakout. The 1.5677 level is a resistance formed in Dec. 2011. From the resistance area of 1.5650-1.5677, we might expect a bit stronger reaction, back toward the 1.55, and the 1.54 area. However, if the market pushes above 1.57, we open up the next resistance pivot from Nov. 2011, near 1.6050.
