AUD/USD Dark Cloud Cover Offers Ominous Warning Near Range-Top

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Dark Cloud Cover Formation Warns Of A Correction
  • Recovery Doubtful Despite Test of Key Support

The Australian Dollar’s retracement of its recent gains has yielded a Dark Cloud Cover formation, warning a further pullback for the currency. The bearish pattern is the third in the space of a month and may herald another decline to the range-bottom at 0.9320. However, some skepticism over the potential for further follow-through may be warranted given the choppiness of recent price action.
