AUD/USD Doji Indicates Hesitation From The Bears Near 2014 Low

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Flat
  • Doji Suggests Indecision Near 2014 Low
  • Awaiting Bearish Signals In Intraday Trade

AUD/USD is at a critical juncture near its 2014 low with a Doji on the daily suggesting reluctance from the bears to lead the pair lower. Yet in the absence of key bullish reversal signals the prospect of a recovery is questionable. A downside break of the nearby barrier would potentially pave the way for a run on the July ’10 low near 0.8320.

The four hour chart reveals the Aussie is struggling at the intraday 0.8660 barrier. The emergence of a bearish reversal pattern at the ceiling would be seen as a fresh opportunity to enter short positions.
