2023-08-02 • Updated
As is the custom, every new month in the financial market often presents long-term, swing trading opportunities for traders like you and me.

GBPJPY - D1 Timeframe
As I mentioned in a recent article, GBPJPY, after having broken out of a consolidation channel, returned for a retest of the turncoat trendline, which it had initially broken below. As a result, I expect a reaction from the supply zone to confirm my bearish sentiment and present me with reliable entry criteria. The rejection from that supply zone is the final piece of the puzzle I would be waiting for.
GBPAUD - D1 Timeframe
GBPAUD is retesting a major supply zone extending to the monthly timeframe. The initial movement had been rejected from the supply zone and trendline resistance earlier, so I expect to see a further drop from the same zone. Although the market is yet to present a proper break of structure, the price would nonetheless reach for the trendline support and the demand zone below it.
GBPUSD - D1 Timeframe
GBPUSD recently broke out of a consolidation channel and has completed a retest of the said trendline. Looking at the current price action, the break of structure, and the trendline retest, I expect to see a continuation of the downward movement. The rejection from the trendline is expected to push prices further down toward the demand zone between the 50 and 100 period moving averages.
