AUD/USD Aims At 0.9200 With Bullish Reversal Signal Missing
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Bearish Engulfing pattern on the daily remains the dominant pattern
- Key resistance at 0.9300, Support at 0.9200/10 in intraday trade
The Bearish Engulfing pattern noted in recent candlestick’s reports continues to deliver declines for the Australian Dollar. While prices are edging closer to key support near 0.9200/10, we’re yet to see a bullish signal emerge that could herald a bounce, which leaves shorts preferred.
