  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Dojis Highlight Hesitation Near Range-Bottom
  • Harami On H4 Warned Of An Intraday Correction

The Australian Dollar has managed to climb back above the 0.9280 barrier after several Doji formations suggested hesitation from the bears to lead the currency lower. At this stage bullish reversal patterns remain absent on the daily, which casts doubt over the potential for a sustained recovery for the Aussie. A daily close below the range-bottom at 0.9210 would cast the immediate risk lower and open the door to a knock on 0.8990.
