AUD/USD Hanging Man Awakes Bears From Hibernation

AUD/USD Hanging Man Awakes Bears From Hibernation

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Pullback Offers A Hanging Man Confirmation
  • Clean Descent To Recent Lows To Prove Difficult

The Australian Dollar has retreated after failing to breach the 0.8885 barrier noted in yesterday’s report. With a Hanging Man its wake the bears appear unprepared to relinquish their grip on prices. This could set the scene for a revisit of the recent lows near 0.8660. However, a clean descent is likely to prove difficult in light of the “choppy” price action present over the past week.

The four hour chart offered an early indication of an intraday retreat with Harami pattern offering a turning signal. Some buying interest appears evident at the 0.8730 floor as a Piercing Line takes shape. If the nearby barrier is broken it may pave the way for a retest of the 0.8660 mark.
