Forex Strategy: AUD/USD Struggles As 0.9300 Handle Caps Gains

Forex Strategy: AUD/USD Struggles As 0.9300 Handle Caps Gains

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: sidelines preferred
  • Bearish reversal signal emerges on daily but fails to receive confirmation
  • Doji in intraday trade suggests bulls prepared to support prices near 0.9210

The Australian Dollar continues to flounder as sellers keep the currency contained below the 0.9300 handle. While a Shooting Star formation had hinted at a potential reversal, it failed to receive confirmation from a successive down day, which casts doubt over a potential correction. Buyers may look to keep prices supported around former resistance at 0.9210.

AUD/USD: Rally Stalls As Shooting Star Forms

Similarly a look at intraday price action suggests that the potential for downside follow-through is limited at this stage. If the bears manage to take hold of prices and push the AUD/USD below support at 0.9210, it may open up further falls back towards the 0.9130 mark.
