Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.9325 (23.6% Fib ret.), 0.9242 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 0.9460-69 (trend line, Apr 10 high)

The Australian Dollar turned lower against its US counterpartas expected after prices produced a Shooting Star candlestick below the 0.95 figure. Near-term support is at 0.9325, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that initially targeting the 38.2% level at 0.9242. Near-term resistance is in the 0.9460-69 area, marked support-turned-resistance at a rising trend line set from late March and the April 10 high.

Risk/reward considerations argue against taking a short position with prices trading so close to relevant support.We will remain flat for the time being, waiting for a more attractive setup to present itself.
