AUD/USD Technical Analysis: 61.8 percent Fib has put brakes on the rally

  • AUD/USD's rally from the Jan. 3 low of 0.6744 has run into a roadblock at 0.7146 - 61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement of 0.7393/0.6744.
  • The 5-day and 10-day moving averages (MAs) are trending north, having produced a bullish crossover. The outlook, therefore, would turn bullish if the AUD finds acceptance above the 61.8 percent hurdle.
  • Repeated failure to take out the golden ratio of the 61.8 percent Fib would weaken bullish pressures.
