AUD/USDis at a critical juncture as it teases at a break below the 0.8660 barrier. The sharp drop for the currency has left a Piercing Line pattern lacking confirmation - dashing hopes of a reversal for the pair. A daily close below the nearby floor could open the July ’10 low near 0.8320.

The Aussie has slid below intraday buying interest at the 0.8690 floor opening a test of the 2014 low near 0.8660 over the session ahead. A Harami pattern appears to be taking shape, yet awaits validation from a successive up period before it could hint at a bounce.
