AUD/USD Technical Analysis
In the past few days, there was a steady recovery in the Aussie Dollar from well below the 0.6840 level against the US Dollar. The AUD/USD pair broke a couple of important resistances near 0.6850 to enter a positive zone.
The upward move was such that the pair even climbed above the 0.6900 resistance and settled above the 50 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the pair traded as high as 0.6938 and it is currently correcting lower.
It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 0.6886 low to 0.6938 high. However, the 0.6910 support is acting as a strong buy zone.
Moreover, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support near 0.6910 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 0.6886 low to 0.6938 high is also near the 0.6910 level.
Therefore, a downside break below the 0.6910 support might start a substantial downside correction. The next support is near the 0.6900 level. However, the main support could be 0.6875 and the 50 hourly simple moving average.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 0.6935 and 0.6940 levels. A successful break above the 0.6940 resistance area could start a strong upward move in the coming sessions towards 0.7000.
NZD/USD Technical Analysis

Finally, the pair rallied above the 0.6620 level and a high was formed near the 0.6635 level. Recently, the pair corrected lower below 0.6620. It also broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 0.6574 low to 0.6635 high.
However, the 0.6605 and 0.6600 support levels are acting as strong buy zones. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 0.6574 low to 0.6635 high is also near the 0.6605 level.
Therefore, a downside break below the 0.6600 support might push the pair further lower towards the 0.6575 support.
