- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.7857, 0.7706, 0.7559
- Resistance:0.8058, 0.8221, 0.8384
The Australian Dollar moved aggressively higher, taking out a range resistance at the 0.79 figure and suggesting an expected reversal is at hand. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.8059 exposes the 50% level at 0.8221.Alternatively, a turn below the 0.7857-0.7900 area (range top resistance-turned-support, 23.6% Fib) clears the way for a challenge of the 0.7706-33 zone (range mid-line, 14.6% retracement).
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 an actionable opportunity to present itself.
