AUD/USD Rebounds After Dragonfly Doji Denoted Indecision At 2014 Low
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Dragonfly Doji Signaled Hesitation Near 0.8660
- Climb Over 0.8815 Ceiling To Suggest A Base
AUD/USD has bounced off the 0.8660 barrier after a Dragonfly Doji denoted reluctance from traders to lead the pair lower. However, the candlestick formation is not classed as a key reversal pattern. This casts some doubt over whether sentiment has truly shifted for the pair. A climb over the nearby 0.8815 hurdle would help suggest a base and may open a retest of the 0.8885 ceiling.

The return of the bulls was heralded by a Piercing Line pattern on the four hour chart. The leap over 0.8770 amid an absence of reversal signals may see the Aussie’s gains extend towards the 0.8830 ceiling.
