The Australian Dollar is digesting gains near the middle of a now-familiar range below the 0.79 figure against its US counterpart. Near-term resistance is at 0.7733, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 0.7857-7900 area (23.6% level, February 25 high).Alternatively, a turn below the March 11 low at 0.7559clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 0.7421.
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.
