Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Long upper wick signals doubt amongst the bulls at resistance
  • Bullish Engulfingpattern hints intraday gains
The Australian Dollar continues to consolidate within the 0.9320 to 0.9440 range with little in the way of clear candlestick signals to suggest a directional bias. While a long upper wick above 0.9440 on one of the daily candles suggests hesitation from the bulls it is insufficient to suggest a bearish reversal.
