GBPAUD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPAUD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.7881, 1.7761, 1.7956 and 1.8044 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 20 day average, which is 36.8 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time.
