AUD/USD Technical Analysis: 0.80 Figure Still Capping Gains

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: 0.80 Figure Still Capping Gains

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7867, 0.7803, 0.7739
  • Resistance:0.7993, 0.8075, 0.8121

The Australian Dollar remains in digestion mode as the currency oscillates in a now-familiar range below the 0.80 figure against its US counterpart. Near-term support is at 0.7867, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 0.7803. Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib expansion at 0.7993 opens the door for a test of the 0.8057-75 area (50% expansion, April 29 high).

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.
