AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Aussie Selloff Finally at Hand?

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Aussie Selloff Finally at Hand?

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.9199, 0.9085, 0.8955
  • Resistance: 0.9245-67, 0.9367, 0.9504

The Australian Dollar may have finally broken out of its stubborn five-month range against its US counterpart. A daily close below falling channel floor support at 0.9199 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 0.9085. Alternatively, a reversal above the 0.9245-67 area marked by the 23.6% level and an upward-sloping trend line set from early April clears the way for a test of the channel top at 0.9367.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices sitting at support. We remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a corrective bounce or a further push downward to generate an actionable selling opportunity.
