AUD/USD Awaiting Breakout Above Recent Highs To Open 0.9455

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Correction Questionable With Reversal Signals Lacking
  • Leap Over 0.9370 Hurdle Required To Open 0.9455

AUD/USD has stalled at the 0.9370 ceiling, yet an absence of reversal candlesticks warrants some skepticism over the potential for a correction. A leap over the nearby hurdle would be required open a clear run on the pair’s recent highs near 0.9455.

The four hour chart paints a contrasting picture to the daily. A Bearish Engulfing formation near the 0.9370 barrier may be offering an early warning of a correction. This leaves the spotlight on the 0.9327 mark over the session ahead which is likely to see buying interest renewed.
