- Support:0.7715, 0.7638, 0.7469
- Resistance:0.7899, 0.8069, 0.8343
The Australian Dollar may be readying to resume the down trend against its US counterpart after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term range support is at 0.7715, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.7638. Alternatively, a push above the intersection of trend line resistance and the 14.6% Fib retracement at 0.7899 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 0.8069.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
