- Resistance:0.8581, 0.8659, 0.8772
The Australian Dollar may be preparing to turn higher against its US counterpart following the appearance of a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close above support-turned-resistance marked by the January 2014 lowat 0.8659 exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.8743. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% Fib expansion at 0.8531 opens the door for a challenge of the 61.8% threshold at 0.8441.
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.
