- Support:0.8020, 0.7900, 0.7803
- Resistance:0.8094, 0.8214, 0.8288
The Australian Dollar continues to tread water above the 0.80 figure against its US counterpart after touching the weakest level in five years. A daily close above the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.8094 exposes the December 31 highat 0.8214. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% level at 0.8020 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib at 0.8012.
Prices are wedged too closely between immediate support and resistance barriers to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more attractive opportunity to present itself.
