AUD/USD And NZD/USD Could Resume Decline

FXOpen

AUD/USD is struggling to settle above the 0.7200 resistance zone and it could resume its decline. Similarly, NZD/USD is facing hurdles near 0.6550 and it might decline again.

Important Takeaways for AUD/USD and NZD/USD

  • The Aussie Dollar started an upside correction from the 0.7140 support against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break above a short-term bearish trend line with resistance near 0.7175 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD.
  • NZD/USD is currently facing a strong hurdle near the 0.6550 and 0.6555 resistance levels.
  • There is a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6545 on the hourly chart of NZD/USD.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis

The Aussie Dollar started a major decline from the 0.7275 swing high against the US Dollar. The AUD/USD pair broke the 0.7200 support zone and a major bullish trend line to move into a bearish zone.

The pair even dived below 0.7180 before it found support near 0.7135. A swing low was formed near 0.7135 on FXOpen and the pair is currently correcting higher. There was a break above the 0.7150 and 0.7180 levels.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis Aussie Dollar

The pair even climbed above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the 0.7275 high to 0.7135 low. Moreover, there was a break above a short-term bearish trend line with resistance near 0.7175 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD.

However, the pair seems to be facing a strong resistance near the 0.7200 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the 0.7275 high to 0.7135 low is also acting as a hurdle.

If there is no upside break and close above 0.7200, the pair is likely to resume its decline. An initial support is near the 0.7180, below which the bears are likely to aim a retest of 0.7140.

Conversely, the pair could break the 0.7200 barrier and settle nicely above the 50 hourly SMA. The next resistance could be 0.7220, above which AUD/USD might test 0.7250.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis

The New Zealand Dollar also followed a similar pattern after it declined sharply from the 0.6650 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The NZD/USD pair traded as low as 0.6488 and it is currently correcting higher.

There was a break above the 0.6500 and 0.6520 resistance levels. The pair also climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the 0.6651 high to 0.6488 low.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis Kiwi Dollar

It is now facing a major resistance near the 0.6550 level. There is also a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6545 on the hourly chart of NZD/USD. The trend line is close to the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the 0.6651 high to 0.6488 low.

Above the trend line resistance, the next major resistance is near the 0.6570 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. A close above the 0.6550 and 0.6570 levels might open the doors for a larger upward move.

On the downside, the 0.6520 level is an initial support for the bulls. The next major support is near the 0.6500 level.  Any further losses may perhaps push it into a bearish zone towards the 0.6450 level.
