AUD/USD Teeters On The Brink of A Correction Following Reversal Signal

AUD/USD Teeters On The Brink of A Correction Following Reversal Signal

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Shooting Star and Bearish Engulfing patterns offer warnings
  • Key resistance remains at 0.9440, support at 0.9330

The Australian Dollar is teetering on the brink of a correction following the formation of a Shooting Star pattern near key resistance at 0.9440. The bearish reversal signal has received confirmation form a successive down period, which suggests a potential dip to support at 0.9300. While on first glance, the setup appears promising, traders should be mindful that the uptrend remains intact and a similar signal back in April failed to elicit a bearish reaction.
