Forex Strategy: AUD/USD Hammer Plays Out With Extended Gains

Forex Strategy: AUD/USD Hammer Plays Out With Extended Gains

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Piercing Line favors upside gains
  • An Evening Star pattern failed to get confirmation from a break below support
  • Bearish reversal candlestick formation with follow-through needed before offering a bearish bias

The sharp move higher for the AUD/USD in recent trading arose following a Hammer candle formation on the 4 hour chart. The pair has now recovered by roughly 250 pips since the formation of a Piercing Line candle pattern near the 0.8700 handle.

However, with sellers likely sitting around the psychologically significant US 90 cent level further gains may be limited. The presence of a bearish reversal candlestick close-by the key resistance level would likely present a short-term selling opportunity with a potential target of 0.8900.
