Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.9414
  • Support:0.9305-24, 0.9223, 0.9181
  • Resistance: 0.9422, 0.9500-7, 0.9602

The Australian Dollar turned downward as expected against its US counterpart after the pair produced a Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Support lines up in the 0.9305-24 area, marked by a horizontal pivot in play since March and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break below that on a daily closing basis exposes the 0.9181-223 zone, bracketed by a range bottom and the 38.2% level. Alternatively, reversing above support-turned-resistance at 0.9422 opens the door for a challenge of the 0.9500-7 region (trend line support-turned-resistance, 38.2% Fib expansion).

We sold AUDUSD at 0.9414, initially aiming for 0.9324. A stop-loss is set to activate on a daily close abovethe July 1 high at 0.9504. We will take profit on half of the trade and move the stop-loss to breakeven on the remainder of the position once the first objective is met.
