British Pound in Uptrend Consolidation vs. Aussie

A rather short-lived uptrend on the GBP/AUD daily chart that lasted from January 11 through February 8 has ended in a consolidation pattern known as a symmetrical triangle. The triangle is a continuation formation, which would prompt us to buy the currency pair should the bullish breakout occur.

The image below shows the triangle’s sides marked with the yellow lines. My potential entry level is marked with the cyan line — it is positioned at 10% of the triangle’s base width above the upper border. The take-profit level is marked with the green line and is located at 100% of the same distance. As it is always the case with the bullish setups, I recommend setting your stop-loss to the low of the breakout candle. Should the breakout candle’s body appear mostly above the upper border, the low of the preceding candle can be used for a stop-loss. I use symmetrical triangles only as a trend continuation pattern and will not trade a reversal breakout here. You can click on the chart to see its larger version:
