  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.9414
  • Support:0.9441, 0.9398, 0.9324
  • Resistance: 0.9460-76, 0.9504-11, 0.9554

The Australian Dollar has launched a swift recovery against its US counterpart following the release of second-quarter CPI figures. Prices are testing resistance in the 0.9460-76 area, marked by the April 10 high and the 50% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that on a daily closing basis exposes the 0.9504-11 region bracketed by the July 1 high and the 61.8% level. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 38.2% Fib at 0.9441 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 0.9398.

We entered short AUDUSD at 0.9414, initially targeting a return to 0.9324. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close abovethe July 1 high at 0.9504. We will take profit on half of the trade and move the stop-loss to breakeven on the remainder of the position once the first objective is met.
