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.
