AUD/USD Wild Whipsaw Leaves Bullish Candlestick Formation In Its Wake

AUD/USD Wild Whipsaw Leaves Bullish Candlestick Formation In Its Wake

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Rebound Produces ABullish Engulfing Pattern
  • Dark Cloud Cover On H4 Awaits Confirmation

AUD/USD continues to swing wildly within its wide trading band with the latest whipsaw leaving a Bullish Engulfing formation in its wake. Yet the key reversal candlestick pattern may struggle to find follow-through with heavy selling pressure hanging overhead near the 0.8900 handle. A daily close beyond the ceiling would be required to suggest a continued advance. Whereas a pullback below the 0.8660 barrier is needed to pave the way for a descent on the July 2010 low near 0.8320.

Candlestick patterns have helped signal intraday turning points within AUD/USD’s recent range. The latest Dark Cloud Cover formation offers an ominous warning, yet awaits confirmation to suggest a retreat over the session ahead. Buying interest is likely to be renewed at the critical 0.8660 barrier.
