AUD/USD Doji Emerging On The Daily Denotes Indecision
- Strategy: Short (From 0.8530), Stop: 0.8540 (Daily Close), Target: 0.8330
- Doji On The Daily Suggests Indecision From Traders
- H4 Reveals Morning Star Emerging In Intraday Trade
AUD/USD is in the process of producing a Doji formation in late European trading. Yet the sign of indecision may be insufficient to suggest a recovery over the short-term. Amid a core downtrend, shorts remain preferred with a potential target offered by the July 2010 lows near 0.8540. A daily close above 0.8450 would be required to suggest a base for the pair.

The four hour chart paints a similar picture to the daily with a Gravestone Doji on offer. Yet the close of the current candle in its present position would mark a Morning Star formation. Which would offer a more definitive bullish reversal signal in intraday trade.
