- Resistance:0.7438, 0.7577, 0.7689
The Australian Dollar is treading water having recoiled upward after dipping to a six-year low against its US namesake. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7438 exposes the 38.2% level at 0.7577. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.7219 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 0.7084.
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.
