AUDUSD 0.36% forms bullish engulfing at 0.7875 on 4H chart and at 0.7801 levels in consolidation phase (refer monthly plotting).
As a result, the current rallies are shrugging off bearish patterns occurred in the recent past.
Shooting star & hanging man patterns occurred at 0.7834, 0.7841 and at the stiff resistance levels of 0.7880 (refer circled areas on 4H chart). Bulls shrug-off these bearish patterns, the current prices well above 7DMAs, but previous rallies seem to be little edgy at a stiff resistance of 0.7880 levels (refer daily chart ).
More rallies seem to be likely only upon breach of these resistance levels.
On a broader perspective, the pair has been going through consolidation phase after a massive downtrend. While shooting star evidences considerable slumps from last September, the bullish engulfing pattern has occurred at 0.7801 levels to counter dips, bulls manage to break-out channel & range resistance again, the major trend goes non-directional (refer monthly plotting).
Although both leading oscillators ( RSI & Stochastic ) have constantly been showing upward convergence, momentum seems to be little puzzling on monthly terms.
While both lagging indicators (7 & 21 DMAs, EMAs & MACD on both timeframes) signal extension of bull swings.
