Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: sidelines preferred
  • Dragonfly Doji on the four hour chart resulted in an intraday bounce
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern on the daily awaits confirmation

The Bearish Engulfing pattern that has arisen following the AUD/USD’s false break above 0.9085 is warning of further declines for the pair. However, the formation has yet to receive confirmation and against the backdrop of a short-term uptrend caution is suggested when looking at shorts.

As noted in yesterday’s candlesticks report the Dragonfly Doji on the four hour chart was hinting at a bounce during the session which continues to stand. Expect further gains to be met by some selling pressure at the psychologically significant 0.9100 handle.
