AUD/USD Recovery Questionable As Harami Fails To Find Follow-Through
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Harami Offers Bullish Reversal Signal Near 0.9320
- H4 Demonstrates Absence of Key Bearish Patterns
The Australian Dollar continues to consolidate after a Harami pattern on the daily failed to find upside follow-through. This places doubt over a recovery for AUD/USD which is further warranted by the close proximity to selling pressure at 0.9330. Clearance of the nearby hurdle would be required to yield a drive to the range-top at 0.9440.

An Evening Star formation on the four hour chart offered an early warning of a retreat for the Aussie. With bullish reversal patterns seemingly missing a sustained push towards intraday resistance at 0.9338 is doubtful.
