- Support:0.8094, 0.8020, 0.7900
- Resistance:0.8241, 0.8369, 0.8472
The Australian Dollar is advanced as expected against its US namesake after showing a Hammer candlestick bolstered by positive RSI divergence. Near-term resistance is in the 8214-41 area, marked by the December 31 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8369. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.8094 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 0.8020.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
