- Resistance:0.7878, 0.8075, 0.8235
The Australian Dollar paused to consolidate gains against its US counterpart, with a Doji candlestick hinting a pullback may be ahead. Near-term resistance-turned-support is at 0.7739, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the March 11 lowat 0.7748.Alternatively, a push above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7878clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% level at 0.8075.
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.
