AUD/USD Technical Analysis

This past week, the Aussie Dollar remained in a positive zone above 0.7200 against the US Dollar. However, the AUD/USD pair failed to clear the 0.7250 resistance zone.

As a result, there was a bearish reaction and the pair started a fresh decline below the 0.7200 support level. There was a steady decline below the 0.7150 support level. The pair even broke the 0.7120 support and settled below the 50 hourly simple moving average.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis Aussie Dollar

A low is formed near 0.7056 on FXOpen recently and it is currently correcting higher. There was a break above the 0.7080 level, but it struggled to gain momentum above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7190 high to 0.7056 low.

On the upside, there are many hurdles forming near 0.7100 and 0.7120. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7190 high to 0.7056 low is also near 0.7120.

Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.7140 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD. On the downside, the 0.7060 and 0.7050 are immediate support levels. Any further losses may perhaps open the doors for more losses towards the 0.7020 and 0.7000 support levels in the near term.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis

The New Zealand Dollar also followed a similar pattern and started a fresh decline after it failed to gain strength above 0.6680 against the US Dollar. The NZD/USD pair broke the 0.6650 support level to move into a bearish zone.

The decline gained pace below 0.6640 and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It even spiked below the 0.6600 support and traded as low as 0.6576.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis Kiwi Dollar

The pair is currently correcting higher above 0.6590. However, it is facing hurdles near 0.6600, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6682 high to 0.6576 low. There is also a short-term bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6600 on the hourly chart of NZD/USD.

A clear break above the trend line resistance is needed for a push towards the 0.6620 resistance. The next resistance is near the 0.6630 level or the 50 hourly simple moving average.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6682 high to 0.6576 low is also near 0.6630. If there is no upside break above 0.6600 or 0.6620, the pair is likely to continue lower.

An initial support is near the 0.6575 level. A clear break below the 0.6575 support could lead the NZD/USD pair towards the 0.6550 support. The next major support is near the 0.6520 level, below which it could test the 0.6500 zone.
