Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts preferred
  • 0.9085 mark remains key resistance level (see daily chart)
  • Intraday bounce may offer new selling opportunities

The AUD/USD is hinting at an intraday bounce in light of the Inverted Hammer candlestick formation on the four hour chart near the key 0.9000 handle. However, follow-through to the upside may be limited here given the strong resistance present at the 0.9085 mark (see daily chart). As such a rally for the Aussie would be seen as an opportunity to enter new short positions.

AUD/USD: Buyers Emerge At 0.9000

It should also be noted that the recent recovery for the Aussie has resulted in a Hammer candlestick formation on the daily chart. While technically a bullish reversal signal, 0.9085 would need to be cleared before looking at buying the AUD/USD.
