AUD/USD Risks Return To Range-Bottom As Reversal Pattern Emerges

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Bearish Candlestick Pattern Casts Risk Lower
  • Shooting Star Offered Early Warning Of A Pullback

AUD/USD may face further declines with a Bearish Engulfing formation awaiting confirmation on the daily. A successive down session would help validate the signal and suggest a retreat to the pair’s range-bottom near 0.8660. This leaves shorts preferred with a daily close above the 0.8885 ceiling required to negate a bearish technical bias.
