Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Shooting Star and Bearish Engulfing patterns offer warnings
  • Key resistance remains at 0.9440

The Australian Dollar is giving back ground following a failed break above a key resistance level at 0.9440. The pullback in the commodity currency has resulted in the formation of a Shooting Star candlestick, which offers an ominous warning of a potential decline to support at 0.9300.
