AUDUSD: Bulls Test Trend-Defining Resistance
Prices pulled back to support at 1.0410, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, after putting in a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at a falling trend line set from late-July 2011 (a barrier reinforced by the 38.2% level at 1.0560). Continued selling initially targets the 14.6% Fib at 1.0318. Alternatively, a break above resistance targets the 50% expansion at 1.0682. Current positioning doesn’t offer an attractive entry point from a risk/reward perspective and we will stand aside for now.
