- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.9390 (23.6% Fib exp.), 0.9318 (14.6% Fib exp.)
- Resistance: 0.9460-0.9507 (Apr 10 high, 38.2% Fib exp., channel floor), 0.9602 (50% Fib exp.)
The Australian Dollar is within striking distance of its April high against its US counterpart after last week’s impressive recovery. Critical resistance lines up in the 0.9460-0.9507 area, marked by the April 10 top, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, and the underside of a previously broken rising channel. A daily close above this barrier initially exposes the 50% Fib at 0.9602. Alternatively, a move back below the 23.6% level at 0.9390 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 0.9318.
Current positioning does not offer an actionable trade signal at this point. We will opt to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a more attractive opportunity to present itself.
