Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Indicates Bulls Lacking Steam At Nearby Resistance
  • Break of Trading Band Needed To Offer Clearer Signals

The Australian Dollar remains trapped in a narrow trading band with an ensemble of short body candlesticks suggesting indecision from traders. A daily close above the former-range-bottom at 0.9330 would open a re-test of the recent highs near 0.9455.

The four hour chart offers a more defined picture of the narrow range that has formed for AUD/USD. A Dragonfly Doji near 0.9355 offered an early indication of a pullback to the 0.9280 floor. With an Inverted Hammer now in its wake a recovery may be on the cards over the session ahead. Crucially, the key reversal signal requires confirmation from a successive up-period to be validated.
