GBPAUD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: GBPAUD crossed below its 50 day moving average yesterday. 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 50 day average, which is 21.2 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPAUD’s price has gone up 8 them. Moreover, we’re also seeing a bearish engulfing pattern; in light of the uptrend on the 90 and 14 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.
