Current level is 0.7529, trading close to the rising 40 week moving average of 0.7540 and below the monthly pivot level of 0.7622. The Aussie has been in a bearish environment since September 2011 when it was trading above parity. The lowest level of 0.6825 was achieved in January 2016 and since then this currency pair is in the process of tracing out a rising triangle pattern, having its support at 0.7270 and resistance at 0.7835. A break of resistance would set focus on the 0.8450 level which corresponds to the Fibonacci 38.2% retracement measured from the low of 0.6825 to the high of 1.1080 made in July 2011.
