AUD/USD Cut Through Key Support Negates Bullish Candlestick Pattern
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Piercing Line Pattern Fails To Find Confirmation
- H4 Chart Reveals An Absence Of Reversal Signals
AUD/USD’s crash through the 0.8660 floor has left a Piercing Line pattern lacking confirmation, which may leave the pair exposed to further declines. The next definitive support rests some distance away at the July ’10 low near 0.8320. A close back above the 0.8660 barrier would be required to negate a bearish bias and suggest a base.
