Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Long upper wick signals doubt amongst the bulls at resistance
  • Morning Star pattern hints at a bounce in intraday trade

The Aussie Dollar bulls have seemingly lost steam after failing to breach the critical 0.9440 mark in recent trade. A long upper wick on the daily candle suggests hesitation from traders to push the pair higher. However, at this stage a key reversal pattern remains absent on the daily, which casts doubt over the potential for a correction.

Taking a look at a shorter timeframe; a Bearish Engulfing pattern on the four hour chart warned of intraday weakness for the Aussie. However, a Morning Star formation may shift the tide in the bulls favor over the session ahead. Sellers will likely look to emerge at the 0.9435 mark.
