AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Key Trend Line Held for Now

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: Key Trend Line Held for Now

Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Australian Dollar rebounds from 2016 rising trend support line
  • Risk/reward parameters, looming event risk argue for the sidelines

The Australian Dollar is attempting to build higher against its US counterpart after finding support at a rising trend line set from late January. A sustained recovery looks far from assured however as critical event risk looms ahead, threatening to rekindle selling pressure.

Near-term resistance is at 0.7532, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 23.6% level at 0.7587. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% Fib retracement at 0.7452 paves the way for a test of challenge of the 61.8% threshold at 0.7380.

Prices’ proximity to near-term resistance argues against entering long from a risk/reward perspective while the absence of a clear bearish reversal signal hints taking the short side is premature. Finally, looming fundamental risk threatens to materially alter positioning. The sidelines look most attractive for now.
