- Hammer Awaiting Confirmation From Close of Candle
- 0.9210 Remains The Line In The Sand For The Aussie
The Australian Dollar has managed to reclaim some lost ground near the critical 0.9210 barrier as a Hammer formation emerges. However, the bullish reversal pattern awaits confirmation from the close of the current candle, and a successive up-day to be validated. A leap over the 0.9280 hurdle would open a retest of the recent highs near 0.9330/40 mark.
