The AUD/USD is facing another test of the critical 0.9300 handle in early European trading. While there is some hesitation amongst traders as evidenced on the four hour chart, signs of a bearish reversal are at this stage lacking. An upside breakout would open an advance on the next noteworthy high at 0.9440.

A look at intraday price action gives further evidence that prices continue to be compressed within a narrow range between 0.9210/3 and 0.9300, which suggests a breakout may be imminent. The Shooting Star formation failed to receive confirmation from a successive down period, which signals the bulls are still holding onto prices near key resistance.
