Talking Points:

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support:0.9338, 0.9282, 0.9244
  • Resistance: 0.9369, 0.9390-0.9401, 0.9440

The Australian Dollar advanced as expected against its US counterpart, with the pair pushing toward the top of its near-term down trend. A daily close above the 50% Fibonacci expansionat 0.9369 exposes a rising channel top at 0.9390, followed by the 61.8% level at 0.9401. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% retracement at 0.99338 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.9282.

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 taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
