AUDUSD and NZDUSD on Cusp of Breaking Above Key Levels, Lines

AUD/USD trend-line from January under attack

While trends in FX this year haven’t been the easiest to come by for the most part, AUD/USD has been the exception. Since January the persistent downtrend has been marked by an orderly sequence of lower lows and lower highs, and a trend-line to connect several of those peaks.

Trend-lines and trends don’t last forever. While this might not turn out to be a total trend turnaround, a sizable correction looks to be in order. Today, AUD/USD is on the verge of crossing the trend-line from January, and should it do so in convincing fashion look for a broader move higher to develop. The first area of resistance doesn’t arrive up until over 7300.

One could take the entry on a solid daily breakout (on a closing basis) above the trend-line, or wait for the first pullback or consolidation before taking entry. If holding for several days or longer isn’t your forte, then the daily break can be used on short-term time-frames (i.e. 4-hr, 1-hr) to shape a trading bias based on the broader path of least resistance.

For another view, check out our Chief Strategist John Kicklighter’s perspective on AUD/USD.

These 4 tenets can help bolster your Confidence as a Trader.

NZD/USD rounding its way higher out of bottom pattern

Kiwi is on the verge of breaking higher out of an inverse head-and-shoulders pattern, with the trend-line from June also aligning with the neckline of the formation. If today’s strong rally holds, then the daily close will constitute an official break. There is trend-line resistance from August to watch soon, but the depth of the pattern points to a move to around 6800. There may be some opposition around 6700, first, before running there.
