AUD/USD Sideways Drift Leaves Range Trading Preferred
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Clear candlestick reversal patterns absent on the daily chart
- Doji in intraday trade highlights hesitation near 0.9400
AUD/USD remains range-bound with key reversal signals absent on the daily, suggesting the consolidation may continue. Given the narrow 0.9320 and 0.9440 corridor remains intact, turning to intraday timeframes may offer short-term range-trading opportunities.

Examining the four hour timeframe; the psychologically-significant 0.9400 handle appears to be offering some intraday resistance. A Doji candlestick highlights hesitation amongst the bulls and while not classified as a reversal signal, could offer an early indication of a shift in sentiment over the session ahead. A pullback would likely find support at 0.9325, while an upside break would open the 0.9440 range-top.
