AUD/USD Doji Indicates Hesitation Following Upside Breakout

AUD/USD Doji Indicates Hesitation Following Upside Breakout

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bulls Hesitate Following Push Above Key Resistance At 0.9440
  • Doji On H4 Hints At A Consolidation Over The Session Ahead

The Australian Dollar has staged an upside break above the 0.9440 mark with an absence of bearish reversal patterns casting doubt on a correction. However, skepticism over further gains may also be warranted given the proximity to nearby resistance levels at 0.9495 and 0.9540.
