The Australian Dollar is sliding downward against its US counterpart as expected after producing a Doji candlestick. Near-term support is in the 0.7559-7618 area (23.6% Fibonacci expansion, March 11 low), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.7421.Alternatively, a push above the 14.6% expansion at 0.7740clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 0.7878.
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.
