AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Aussie Drops to 4-Year Low

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Aussie Drops to 4-Year Low

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.8466, 0.8364, 0.8263
  • Resistance:0.8540, 0.8592, 0.8669

The Australian Dollar accelerated downward against its US namesake, clearing the bottom set early in the month to hit a four-year low. Near-term support is at 0.8466, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 0.8364. Alternatively, a turn above support-turned-resistance at 0.8540, the November 7 low, clears the way for a test of the 23.6% Fib at 0.8592.

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.
