AUD/USD Rebound Producing A Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern

AUD/USD Rebound Producing A Piercing Line Candlestick Pattern

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern Awaiting Confirmation
  • Daily Close Below 0.8660 May Open 0.8320

AUD/USD’s descent appears to have stalled within striking distance of the 0.8660 barrier as a Piercing Line pattern takes shape. However, the key reversal formation awaits the close of the current candle and an ensuing up-day to suggest a base may be in place. In the absence of validation a revisit of the 2014 low looks likely amid a core downtrend on the daily. A daily close below the nearby floor could open the July ’10 Low near 0.8320.

The “Doji, dive, rinse, repeat” pattern appears to have dissipated on the four chart. In its place a Bullish Engulfing formation has emerged, which awaits confirmation from a period of follow-through. However, the potential for a sustained advance over the session ahead may prove difficult with several layers of congestion overhead.
