AUD/USD Retreats From 0.9400 With Bearish Reversal Signal In Play

AUD/USD Retreats From 0.9400 With Bearish Reversal Signal In Play

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 Shooting Star formation on the daily continues to warn of a potential correction for the Australian Dollar. The currency has struggled near the 0.9440 level of resistance, suggesting the bears may look to take control of prices. While at 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.

AUD/USD: Shooting Star Puts Brakes On Advance
