AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Digesting in a Choppy Range

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Digesting in a Choppy Range

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.8659, 0.8568, 0.8466
  • Resistance:0.8772, 0.8845, 0.8971

The Australian Dollar is struggling to build upward against its US namesake after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.8772 exposes the 23.6% Fib retracement at 0.8845. Alternatively, a turn below the 0.8659-94 area marked by the January 2014 low and the 23.6% expansion opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 0.8568.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
