  • AUD/USD’s hourly chart shows a bullish engulfing candle.  
  • The hourly RSI has created higher lows, confirming a bullish divergence.  

AUD/USD is looking north with signs of bearish-to-bullish trend change on the hourly chart.  

To start with, the pair has created a bullish engulfing candle on the hourly chart. That candlestick Is considered an early sign of bull reversal, especially if it appears following a notable sell-off, as is the case with the AUD. The currency pair topped out at 0.7082 on July 19 and fell to a six-week low of 0.6862 earlier today.  

Further, the hourly chart is now reporting a bullish divergence of the relative strength index (RSI), which occurs when the indicator charts a higher low, contradicting lower highs on the price chart.  

As a result, a move above 0.69 looks likely. The bullish case would weaken if the pair finds acceptance below 0.6862, although that looks unlikely. As of writing, the pair is trading at 0.6879.
