- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8969 (trend line)
- Resistance: 0.9034 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.9085-0.9104 (Jan 13 high, 38.2% Fib exp.)
The Australian Dollar began to edge higher against its US counterpart as expected after putting in a Hammer candlestick at support marked by a rising trend line set from late January. A break above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.9035 on a daily closing basis targets the 0.9085-0.9104 area marked by the 38.2% level and the January 13 high. Trend line support is now at 0.8969.
Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, a viable reversal signal arguing in favor of a short trade is absent for the time being.We will remain on the sidelines until a more actionable setup presents itself.
