AUD/USD Technical Analysis Aussie Dollar US Dollar

There was break below the 0.7220 and 0.7210 levels. The pair even spiked below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the 0.7120 low to 0.7224 high. However, the recent breakout zone near 0.7195 and 0.7200 is currently acting as a strong support.

There is also a major ascending channel forming with support near 0.7165 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD. An intermediate support is near the 0.7175 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the 0.7120 low to 0.7224 high could also provide support in the near term near 0.7172. If the pair fails to stay above the 0.7175 and 0.7160 support levels, it could correct lower towards the 0.7120 support zone.

Conversely, the pair is likely to resume its upward move above the 0.7220 resistance. The next major resistance on the upside is visible near the 0.7250 level.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis

The New Zealand Dollar followed a similar path and it surpassed the 0.6650 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The NZD/USD pair formed a strong support base above 0.6640 and 0.6650 before starting an upward move.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis Kiwi Dollar

The pair traded to a new weekly high near 0.6707 and it is currently correcting gains. There was a break below the 0.6700 level, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.6620 low to 0.6707 high.

On the downside, the 0.6680 level is acting as a strong support for the bulls. The first major support is seen near the 0.6670 level (the recent breakout zone).

The next major support is near the 0.6660 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.6620 low to 0.6707 high. The 50 hourly simple moving average is also near the 0.6655 level to act as a support.

Therefore, dips in NZD/USD could find support near 0.6670 or 0.6660. Any further losses may perhaps push it into a bearish zone towards the 0.6620 level.

On the upside, an initial resistance is seen near the 0.6710 level, above which NZD/USD might continue to rise towards 0.6750 or even 0.6765 in the near term.
