GBP/AUD is leaning down
Information is not investment advice
On October 16, GBP/AUD met resistance in the 1.9090 area (resistance line from March highs). Since then, the pair has been consolidating with a bearish bias. On the D1, the price is far above the MAs. This makes the pound vulnerable for a decline to 1.8635 (100-period MA on the H4). The move down will be triggered in case of the decline below 1.8705 (38.2% Fibo retracement of the October advance). Bulls need to push the price above 1.8840 to get a chance to return to the 1.90 area.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
Global stocks were mostly lower on Monday, following the weakness on Wall Street on Friday that stemmed from the weaker-than-expected retail sales report for December.
Most analysts claim EUR/USD will dip to 1.2000. After that, the pair should reverse to the upside.
Asian equity markets began the week cautiously after Friday’s losses on Wall St. Mixed Chinese GDP added to the tentative mood for stocks.
