AUD/USD Technical Analysis Aussie Dollar US Dollar

There was a break below the 0.7300 and 0.7280 support levels. The pair even traded 0.7250 and settled below the 50 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as 0.7221 and currently consolidating losses.

An initial resistance is near the 0.7245 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7318 high to 0.7221 low. There is also a key declining channel forming with resistance near 0.7255 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD.

The main resistance is forming near the 0.7270 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7318 high to 0.7221 low is also near 0.7270.

If there is a clear break above the channel resistance and then 0.7270, the pair could revisit the 0.7340 and 0.7350 resistance levels. Conversely, the pair might continue to move down below the 0.7220 support. The next major support is near the 0.7200 level.

Any further losses below the key 0.7200 support level may perhaps open the doors for a larger decline towards the 0.7150 support zone.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis

In the past few days, there was a strong increase in the New Zealand Dollar above the 0.6800 resistance level against the US Dollar. The NZD/USD pair even surged above the 0.6850 and 0.6880 resistance levels.

Finally, there was a spike above the 0.6900 level and the pair traded to a new multi-month high at 0.6914. Recently, there was a downside correction below the 0.6880 support level.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis Kiwi Dollar

There was a break below the 50 hourly simple moving average at 0.6880. The pair broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.6808 swing low to 0.6914 high. Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near 0.6860 on the hourly chart of NZD/USD.

The pair is now trading below the 0.6840 support, plus the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.6808 swing low to 0.6914 high. It seems like NZD/USD is approaching the 0.6800 support level, where the bulls might emerge.

Any further losses may perhaps open the doors for a larger decline towards the 0.6750 support. Conversely, the pair could stay above 0.6800 and start a fresh increase above the 0.6840 and 0.6850 resistance levels in the near term.
