AUD/USD Doji Denotes Hesitation Near 2014 High As Range Remains Intact
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Bullslose steam near key resistance
- Range between 0.9210 and 0.9440 remains in force
AUD/USD traders remain hesitant to push the pair higher as the currency travels shy of its 2014 highs near 0.9440. A Doji on the daily offers a signal of indecision yet may not be indicative of a correction at this point. A pullback would likely find support at the range-bottom of 0.9210 that has supported the Aussie since March.

The Harami pattern on the four hour chart offered a warning of an intraday dip for AUD/USD, following its failure to breach 0.9435. However, with support nearby at 0.9375 the extent of a correction may prove limited.
