AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0238, Targeting Above 1.0412

Floating Profit / Loss: +135 pips

We entered long AUDUSD at 1.0238. Prices broke resistance in the 1.0355-65, marked by the 50% Fibonacci retracement and a horizontal pivot level, meeting our initial objective. The pair now aim to challenge the 61.8% Fib at 1.0412 and we will continue to hold long, looking for a break above that level to expose the 76.4% retracement at 1.0483. The stop-loss has been revised to the breakeven level.
