- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.9363 (38.2% Fib exp.), 0.9303 (23.6% Fib exp.)
- Resistance: 0.9412 (50% Fib exp.), 0.9461 (61.8% Fib exp.)
The Australian Dollar continued to advance for a third consecutive day against its US namesake hitting the highest level in five months. Buyers are now testing the 50% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9412, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing for the 61.8% level at 0.9461. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 0.9363 targets the 23.6% expansion at 0.9303.
The available range between near-term support and resistance is too narrow to make for an attractive trade setup for a strategy using a stop-loss activated on a daily closing basis (as is the case for our approach) given a 20-day ATR reading of 70. We will remain on the flat for now.
