- Resistance:0.8669, 0.8743, 0.8867
The Australian Dollar turned sharply lower against its US namesake, producing the largest one-day decline in two weeks. Near-term support is at 0.8592, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the November 7 low at 0.8540. Alternatively, a turn back above the 0.8659-69 area marked by the January 2014 lowand the 14.6% expansion clears the way for a test of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 0.8743.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
