- Resistance:0.8743, 0.8869, 0.8970
The Australian Dollar advanced as expected against its US counterpart after prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracementat 0.8743 exposes the 38.2% level at 0.8869. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 0.8620-59 area marked by the January 2014 lowand the 38.2% Fib expansion opens the door for a challenge of the 50% threshold at 0.8531.
Prices are wedged too tightly between near-term up- and down-side technical barriers to justify taking a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will continue to stand aside for the time being, waiting for a more compelling opportunity to present itself.
