Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Haramidelivers a recovery to 0.9440 for the Aussie
  • Warningoffered by a Shooting Star forming on the daily

The Australian Dollar has been afforded a recovery on the back of a Harami candlestick formation on the daily chart. The key reversal pattern suggested a push back to resistance at 0.9440. However, given the strength of selling pressure at the key level, a breakout may be difficult. With a Shooting Star now forming during the Asian session traders should be wary of the potential for a pullback.
