AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Resistance Below 0.79 in Focus

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7748, 0.7559, 0.7452
  • Resistance:0.7878, 0.8075, 0.8235

The Australian Dollar looks to be gearing up for a larger upward correction against its US namesake after prices cleared resistance dating to late October. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7878 exposes the 38.2% level at 0.8075. Alternatively, a reversal below channel top resistance-turned-support at 0.7748opens the door for a test of 0.7559, the March 11 low.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
