AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Bottom Forming Near 0.80?

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Bottom Forming Near 0.80?

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.8020, 0.7900, 0.7803
  • Resistance:0.8094, 0.8214, 0.8288

The Australian Dollar stalled above the 0.80 figure against its US counterpart after sliding to the weakest level in five years. Near-term support is at 0.8020, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.7900. Positive RSI divergence warns a rebound may be ahead however. A reversal back above the 14.6% level at 0.8094 opens the door for a challenge of the December 31 high at 0.8214.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for now and wait for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
