AUD/CAD Bullish Correction Meets a Double Top

In early September, AUD/CAD fell to a new low on the year at 0.9133. It has been been in a bullish correction as seen in the 4H chart.

The 4H chart shows the bullish correction going up to the psychological level and previous resistance at 0.95. Also note that the market respected the 200-period simple moving average SMA. Th RSI did tag the overbought area but has since neutralized. Price has formed a possible double top under 0.95. 

The double top might be an early warning of a pending bearish continuation attempt, especially because the prevailing trend is bearish as we can see in the daily chart. The next key signal for bearish continuation would be a break below 0.9350, which would clear a rising speedline and the 100-, and 50-period SMAs, as well as a previous support pivot. That would open up the 0.9133 low with risk of continuing lower, in-line with the prevailing downtrend seen in the daily chart.

Note the bearish breakout in the daily chart. The rally in September could just be a pullback to test the broken consolidation range lows. The 0.95 level is indeed a good place to monitor for resistance. So far, it looks like bears want to take control again under 0.95, with bearish technical conditions - from the moving averages and the RSI - intact.
