Counting is underway in the UK but whole we have very few real votes, the  voting day polls have shown a lead for the Remain campaign: either 52% to 48% or 54% to 46%. This has pushed the pound higher and also the the “risk” Australian dollar is enjoying the fruits.

AUD/USD advanced nicely and reached resistance at 0.7640, which worked as resistance around two months ago. However, from there it was rejected, as also the pound is showing hesitation.

The pair is currently ranging between 0.76 and 0.7640. Further support awaits at 0.7530 and 0.75. Further resistance is at 0.7740 and 0.7840.
