The Australian Dollar edged lower against its US namesake as expected after putting in a Doji candlestick. A daily close below the 0.7559-7618 area (23.6% Fibonacci expansion, March 11 low) exposes the 38.2% level at 0.7421.Alternatively, a reversal above the 14.6% expansion at 0.7740opens the door for a test of the March 24 high at 0.7937.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
