(Last Updated April 1, 2021 0:20 GMT)

Currently, GBPAUD’s rate is up 3 pips (0.02%) from the hour prior. The hourly chart shows that GBPAUD has seen 2 straight up hours. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on GBPAUD. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 and 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

GBPAUD Technical Analysis

Notably, GBPAUD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 200 day average, which is 81.6 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 200 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 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. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
