Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: sidelines preferred
  • Bearish reversal signal emerges on daily, but awaits confirmation
  • Bearish Engulfing pattern near key 0.9300 handle warns of declines

The Australian Dollar has come under selling pressure in recent trading following the formation of a Shooting Star candlestick on the daily chart (below). While considered a bearish reversal signal, the pattern needs to see confirmation from the close of a successive down period before being validated. Buyers may look to keep prices supported around former resistance at 0.9210.

Similarly a look at intraday price action on the four hour chart highlights warning signs of a potential decline for the AUD/USD. The Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern near 0.9300 suggests the bulls may have lost their grip on prices. A break below support at 0.9210 may open up further falls back towards former resistance at the 0.9130 mark.
