AUD/USD Bulls Lose Steam As A Doji Suggests Fading Momentum
- Strategy: Flat
- Doji Suggests Bulls Have Lost Momentum
- Evening Star Offered An Early Warning
AUD/USD traders are showing signs of indecision as denoted by a Doji formation on the daily. As noted in recent reports the lingering signs of a near-term downtrend meant a clean run higher was likely to prove difficult. Yet a more definitive bearish reversal signal is left desired to shift the immediate risk lower. A slide back under 0.8660 would return the risks to the recent lows near 0.8540.

An Evening Star on the four hour chart offered an early warning sign that the bears were looking to return to the pair. A close below the 0.8660/80 barrier would open the prospect of a run on the 0.8550 floor.
