Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Indicates Bulls Lost Steam At Nearby Resistance
  • Break of Trading Band Needed To Offer Clearer Signals

The Australian Dollar is searching for direction above the 0.9280 mark with a Doji on the daily suggesting indecision amongst traders. A daily close above the former-range-bottom at 0.9330 would open a re-test of the recent highs near 0.9455.

The four hour chart reveals a similar narrative to the daily. Choppy price action has seen several reversal signals emerge, yet few have found follow-through. Given the context afforded by the daily; a break of the 0.9280-0.9330 trading band would be required to offer a clearer technical basis.
