British Pound Crosses: Bullish Bases

-GBPCHF tests 2009 high, measured resistance at 1.8220
-GBPCAD forming for a test of 1.8400
-GBPAUD monthly candle is bullish

British Pound / Swiss Franc

The GBPCHF is pressuring the high to date and a push above (1.7496) would expose the 200 day SMA at 1.7650. Strength could persist to the 100% extension of the rally from 1.5113-1.7496; which is at 1.8338. Long term, I still maintain that a 5th wave will complete the entire decline from the 2007 top. This long term forecast is valid as long as price is below 1.9369.

British Pound / Canadian Dollar

Last week, I wrote that “there is a good chance that a flat is complete. Favor the upside against Monday’s low (1.7378). The objective is above 1.8500.” There is no change to the bullish outlook.

British Pound / Australian Dollar

Divergence with RSI at the recent low favors GBPAUD strength as does the push through trendline resistance. Initial resistance now is at 2.0912 but a much larger advance is possible. The pair is at the lower end of a decade + range. It is worth noting that tomorrow is the last trading day of the month and this month’s candle sports a long wick and small body that is usually found at bottoms.

British Pound / New Zealand Dollar

A multi-year triangle is likely complete at 2.8968. Confirming completion of the triangle is the decline from 2.8968, which exhibits the 5 wave impulse pattern. An expanded flat is probably underway now that will end above 2.6498. Favor strength from here and a possible test of Fibonacci resistance at 2.7340.
