    Source: FxWire Pro - Technicals / 05 Mar 2018 00:26:07   Eastern Standard Time

    • AUD/USD is extending choppy trade below 200-DMA, bias still bearish.
    • We have seen little impact on the pair from data this month, Aussie largely muted.
    • Technical support weakness. RSI and Stochs biased lower. We see -ve DMI dominance.
    • The major finds stiff resistance at 0.7785 (200-DMA), we see upside only on decisive break above.
    • Focus now on the RBA this week and nonfarm payrolls which will dictate further direction.
    • If bullish US economic narrative is maintained, AUD/USD should chop down lower.
    • Bears eye 0.7637 (78.6% Fib retrace of 0.7501 to 0.8135 rally) ahead of 0.7570 (major trendline).

    Support levels - 0.7743 (61.8% Fib retrace of 0.75012 to 0.81358 rally), 0.77, 0.7637 (78.6% Fib retrace of 0.75012 to 0.81358 rally), 0.7570 (trendline)

    Resistance levels - 0.7763 (5-DMA), 0.7785 (200 DMA), 0.7818 (50% Fib), 0.7838 (20-DMA)

    Recommendation: We prefer to wait for clear directional bias.
