AUD/USD Technical Analysis – Sellers Taking Aim at 0.92

AUD/USD Technical Analysis – Sellers Taking Aim at 0.92

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.9328
  • Support: 0.9201 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.9041 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 0.9300, 0.9395 (channel floor), 0.9408 (May 14 high)

The Australian Dollar declined as expected against its US counterpart after prices took out support at the bottom of a rising channel set from late January. Support comes in at 0.9201, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a daily close below that exposing the 38.2% level at 0.9041. Alternatively, a move back above the 0.93 figure clears the way for a retest of the channel floor (now at 0.9395) as resistance.

We sold AUDUSD at 0.9328 in line with our fundamental outlook, initially targeting 0.9201. A stop-loss is set to trigger on a daily close above 0.9408. We will book profit on half of the position at 0.9201 and trail the stop-loss to breakeven.
