Australian Dollar, New Zealand Dollar, AUD/NZD Technical Analysis – TALKING POINTS

  • AUD/NZD broke below key support, opening door to test early August-lows
  • Breaching below 1.0351 with follow-through may catalyze aggressive selloff
  • RBNZ rate decision and new policy on capital buffers have been key factors

Early into Asia’s Thursday trading session, AUD/NZD crashed through key support at 1.0484, opening the door to re-test the early-August swing-low at 1.0351. Reaching this level would effectively undo all of the pair’s gains it had garnered throughout August and September.

AUD/NZD’s break below key support comes as part of a broader downtrend following the pair’s failure to re-test 2015 descending resistance. The primary catalyst behind the pair’s decline was the RBNZ rate decision where policymakers unexpectedly held rates while markets had priced in a 25-basis point cut. Following the central bank’s announcement, AUD/NZD continued to plummet and broke through several layers of support along the way down.

Selling pressure may continue to accelerate as the pair declines, though buyers may quickly swoop in as the pair approaches 1.0351. A bounce-back may subsequently ensue alongside an abatement in selling pressure. Conversely, if the pair breaks below it, the next target may be 1.0265. This would mark the lowest point since September 2016, excluding the flash crash earlier this year.
