AUD/USD Breaches 0.8660 Amid Absence Of Bearish Signals
- Strategy: Flat
- Missing Reversal Signals May Open Further Gains
- Shooting Star Awaiting Confirmation On H4 Chart
AUD/USD has managed to edge out a daily close beyond the 0.8660 threshold with a void of bearish reversal signals potentially opening further gains. However, with lingering signs of a downtrend a clean run higher may prove difficult. A slide back below 0.8660 would return the risks to the recent lows near 0.8540.

The four hour chart should be closely monitored for intraday warning signs that the bulls have lost steam. Such a signal may be offered if a Shooting Star is confirmed by an ensuing down-period.
