Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.9258, 0.9223-31, 0.9198
  • Resistance: 0.9286, 0.9319, 0.9357

The Australian Dollar moved downward against its US counterpart as expected after prices produced a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. A daily close below support at 0.9258, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, exposes the 0.9223-31 area marked by a range bottom from late March and the 61.8% level. Alternatively, a move above the 38.2% Fib at 0.9286 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% expansion at 0.9319.

Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance to justify taking a trade from a risk/reward perspective. We will stand aside for the time being, waiting for a more attractive setup to present itself.
