AUD/USD Awaiting Reversal Pattern Near Range-Top
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Short Pending
- At A Crossroads With Bearish Candlesticks Lacking
- Evening StarSees Limited Follow-Through
AUD/USD is at a critical juncture as it presses against the upper bound of its recent range with bearish reversal signals lacking. The emergence of a key candlestick pattern near the 0.8885 would be seen as a fresh opportunity to enter a short position. While a daily close above the nearby barrier would open the scope for further gains and negative a bearish technical bias.
Traders should note the upcoming FOMC decision holds the potential to spark significant intraday volatility for the pair, which may obscure technical readings.

The four hour chart has flashed a warning sign of a potential pullback for the Aussie. A Haramipattern suggests the bears may be looking to return to the pair. However, thus far there has been a lackluster response to the signal, which suggests a lack of conviction from traders. A correction lower is likely to find buying interest renewed at the 0.8830 floor.
