Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence of Reversal Patterns Suggests Declines To Continue

Selling pressure is likely to be renewed on a retest of the psychologically-significant 0.9100 ceiling. Whereas, a push below the critical 0.9000 barrier could set the pair up for its next lower and a sharp descent on the 0.8885 mark.
