AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Aussie Attempting a Recovery

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Aussie Attempting a Recovery

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.8592, 0.8540, 0.8466
  • Resistance:0.8669, 0.8743, 0.8867

The Australian Dollar is attempting to launch a recovery against its US counterpart after finding a floor below the 0.86 figure. 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 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.
