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.

Taking a look at a shorter timeframe; a Bullish Engulfing pattern on the four hour chart is hinting at a push higher the Aussie over the session ahead. However, some skepticism may be warranted given the context afforded by the daily and the close proximity to 0.9440.
