The Australian Dollar may be setting a top below the 0.95 figure against its US counterpart after showing a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Negative RSI divergence bolsters the case for a downside scenario. Initial support is at 0.9324, with a daily close below that targeting the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9201. The first layer of resistance lines up at 0.9436, the June 12 high. A turn above that aims for the April 10 high at 0.9460, followed by rising channel bottom support-turned-resistance at 0.9601.
We sold AUDUSD at 0.9403, initially targeting 0.9324. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 0.9460. We will book profit on half of the trade and move the stop-loss to breakeven once the first objective is reached.
