AUD/USD Dark Cloud Cover Delivers Dramatic Decline

Talking Points

  • AUD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Dark Cloud Coversignals potential for continued pullback
  • Piercing Line on four hour chart hints at an intraday recovery

The Australian Dollar has been quick to retrace its hard-fought gains with the currency plunging back below the 0.9440 mark in trading this week. A spike in retail trading volume alongside a Dark Cover Pattern offers an ominous warning for a continued decline. However, follow-through at this stage has been limited with a Doji forming on the daily, suggesting some hesitation by the bears. Buyers are likely to emerge at the 0.9210 mark.
