The Australian Dollar remains range-bound as prices struggle to make good on a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 0.8845, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8971. Alternatively, a turn below the 0.8659-94 area marked by the January 2014 low and the 23.6% Fib expansion clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 0.8568.
Positioning is inconclusive at this point. On one hand, the bottoming implications of the Piercing Line pattern remain intact. On the other, follow-through has been noticeably absent, casting doubt on the signal’s potency. We will remain flat for now until greater clarity emerges.
