GBPAUD : Top Down Analysis

GBPAUD Technical Analysis April 2019

Every trader should always view the market in the bigger picture first. Viewing the market starting from the higher time frame down to the lower time frames will offer a trader a better perspective on the possible price movements that the market can do. A top down analysis will offer a trader a clearer picture of the markets which will in return allow a trader to ultimately decide which side to trade. As you will see in the charts below a top down analysis was used at the start of April 2019 that led us to call the GBPAUD 500 pip move lower that we are currently seeing today.

GBPAUD Weekly Chart 3.31.2019 :Weekly chart contains the possible support/resistance lines where price can possibly move towards. March 31/2019 we saw a strong bearish Weekly candle that formed which signalled that bears were in control and that price had a possibility of moving lower towards next level of support.

Price has since moved 500 pips lower from the 1.86 handle SELL entry area and can still continue lower towards next support level at the 1.80-1.79 area. A top down analysis will always allow a trader to get an overall outlook of where price can go.
