AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Waiting for Direction Clarity

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Waiting for Direction Clarity

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.7783, 0.7717, 0.7619
  • Resistance:0.7881, 0.7960, 0.8039

The Australian Dollar remains locked in a familiar range below the 0.79 figure against its US counterpart as prices await defined direction cues. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7881 exposes the intersection of the 50% level and a falling trend line at 0.7960. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% retracement at 0.7783 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.7717.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
