AUD/USD Scope For A Recovery Limited Despite Inverted Hammer

AUD/USD Scope For A Recovery Limited Despite Inverted Hammer

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Inverted Hammer Candlestick Awaiting Confirmation
  • Dojis Pattern Repeats Itself On The 4 Hour Chart

The Australian Dollar’s short-lived rebound and subsequent reversal has left an Inverted Hammer formation in its wake. The bullish candlestick awaits confirmation from a successive up-day before it could suggest the potential for a more sustained recovery for the currency. Recent reversal signals including a Morning Star, were met with little follow-through. This suggests some skepticism over a change in sentiment is warranted. Heavy selling pressure is likely to be encountered at the 90 US cent ceiling while a push below 0.8815 may open the 2014 lows near 0.8660.

A pattern appears to be repeating itself on the four hour chart for the Aussie. A medley of Dojis have been followed by a short-lived recovery before the currency takes its next leg lower. Amid of a void of classic bullish signals, the latest iteration of the pattern may prove no different, which in turn favors selling into rallies.
