Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Directional Bias Lacking With Reversal Signals Absent
  • Leap Over 0.9330 Hurdle Required To Open 0.9455

AUD/USD continues its tennis match between 0.9280 and 0.9330 with an absence of key reversal signals offering the pair little guidance. Several short body candlesticks suggest that traders to lead the pair on a break in either direction of the narrow band. Clearance of the congestion near 0.9330 would likely be required to open a run on the Aussie’s recent highs near 0.9455.

The four hour chart should continue to be monitored for early warnings signs of a turn in the persistent range. The emergence of a bearish reversal signal near the 0.9327/30 ceiling would open the potential for an intraday correction to the range-bottom at 0.9280.
