Forex: AUD/USD Technical Analysis – Down Trend Boundary Tested

Forex: AUD/USD Technical Analysis – Down Trend Boundary Tested

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.90
  • Support: 0.8919 (14.6% Fib exp.), 0.8821 (23.6% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 0.9051-85 (Jan 13 close and high)

We sold the Australian Dollar against its US counterpart after prices put in a bearish Evening Star candle formation, suggestingthe currency may be carving out a top in the 0.9051-85 area (marked by the January 13 closing and swing highs). Prices descended to our initial target at 0.8919, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, but have since bounced as we suspected after a series of indecision candles. The overall structure of the short-term down trend remains intact however and we will remain short for now, initially looking for a daily close below 0.8919 to expose the 23.6% level at 0.8821. A stop-loss will be activated on a close above 0.9085.
