- Support:0.8659, 0.8568, 0.8466
- Resistance:0.8845, 0.8971, 0.9073
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 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.8845 exposes the 38.2% Fib retracement at 0.8971. 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.
