Hi Traders! GBPAUD short term forecast follow up and update is here. On November 17th I shared this “Technical Analysis – GBPAUD Short Term Forecast” post in our blog. In this post, let’s do a recap of this setup and see how it has developed now. If you would like to learn more about the way we trade and the technical analysis we use then check out the Traders Academy Club. Spoiler alert – free memberships are available!
On the H1 chart, we could see that the price which is moving higher has created a bullish trend pattern in the form of three higher highs, higher lows which we may consider as evidence of bullish pressure. Also, based on the Heikin Ashi candles we can see that currently, we have strong bullish bodies in upward moving market conditions so it basically reflects a bullish environment. We may consider this as another evidence of bullish pressure. In addition to this, the ADX indicator gave a bullish signal here as well at the cross of +DI (green line) versus -DI (red line), and the main signal line (silver line) reads value over 25, we may consider this as yet another evidences of bullish pressure. While measuring the bullish trend pattern using the Fibonacci retracement tool, we have two key support zones that has formed. The first key support zone is formed by the 23.6%(1.84138) – 38.2%(1.83748) Fibonacci retracement levels and the second key support zone is formed by the 50%(1.83432) – 61.8%(1.83117) Fibonacci retracement levels. Until both these key support zones hold my short term view remains bullish here and I expect the price to move higher further.
GBPAUD H1(1 Hour) Chart Current Scenario
Based on the above-mentioned analysis my short term view was bullish here and I was expecting the price to move higher further until the two key support zones hold. After the bullish trend pattern, the deeper pullback towards the key support zones never happened, however smaller pullback did happen on the M15 chart. The price then moved higher further and has delivered around 160 pips move so far.
On the M15 chart, the market provided us with various facts supporting the bullish view. Based on the Heikin Ashi candles we can see that we had strong bullish bodies in upward moving market conditions so it basically reflected a bullish environment. We may consider this as evidence of bullish pressure. We then had a small pullback and at this time looking at the Stochastic Oscillator we could see that the price has reached its extreme. We may consider this as another evidence of bullish pressure. The price then moved higher as I expected it to and provided a wonderful move to the upside as you can see in the image below.
As traders we always have two choices, the first one is to fall in love with our analysis and try to convince the market and expect the price to move in the direction as per our wish. The second one is to follow the facts that the market provides us and make the right actions according to that. As you know the first option won’t help us and as you can see in the example above what happened when we followed the facts that the market hinted to us and took the right action according to that.
