The Australian Dollar is attempting to edge lower against its US namesake as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Support lines up in the 0.9324-44 area, marked by a horizontal pivot in play since March and the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break below that on a daily closing basis exposes the 0.9223-45 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 July 1 high at 0.9504.
Positioning is inconclusive for the time being. Bearish cues remain but follow-through has been absent. We will wait on the sidelines until an actionable opportunity with greater potential for follow-through presents itself.
