Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.9282, 0.9244, 0.9212
  • Resistance: 0.9338, 0.9369, 0.9393-0.9401

The Australian Dollar turned higher against its US namesake as expected, with prices advancing to a three-week high. Near-term resistance is at 0.9338, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 0.9369. A further push beyond that eyes the 0.9393-0.9401 area marked by a falling channel top and the 61.8% Fib. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.9282 opens the door for a challenge of 0.9244, the intersection of the 38.2% threshold and a rising trend line set from early April.

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.
