AUD/USD Probes Above Critical Barrier Following Bullish Pattern
- AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Bullish Engulfing Formation Awaiting Confirmation
- Looking At H4 Chart For Intraday Signs Of Exhaustion
AUD/USD faces a critical session as it probes above the 0.8660 mark with a Bullish Engulfing formation in its wake. Confirmation of the signal from a close above the barrier would suggest the potential for a further recovery towards the 0.8885 ceiling. However, recent similar reversal signals have found limited follow-through, casting some doubt on the potential for a sustained advance. Until the key level is breached on a daily close basis, shorts remain preferred.
