Chart of the Day: Thursday 8th August

AUDUSD- Hourly

AUDUSD –

Following this morning’s early break above the trend line at 0.6764, we saw a further bullish engulfing candle form and the pair push higher. This short-term activity has captured our interest resulting in the commodity-driven pair into our Chart of The Day.

Just this afternoon, the Aussie managed to break above the previous swing high at 0.68 and usually such a move would suggest the downtrend is over, and a new one has begun. However, the current RSI level (Relative Strength Index) is signalling the price has reached overbought territory pointing to a price reversal.

Given the longer-term picture remains bearish, it may be worth considering this bullish activity with a grain of salt. Should it continue, the next key area of resistance sits within the region of 0.6850
