AUDNZD Rally At Risk Ahead of RBNZ- 1.0880 Key Resistance

Notes: The AUDNZD continues to trade within the confines of a well-defined ascending channel formation off the July lows and a break of the weekly & monthly opening range highs yesterday keeps the broader focus on the pair weighted to the topside while above this week’s low at 1.0767. That said, building RSI divergence into key resistance at 1.0875/82 leaves the trade vulnerable for a near-term pullback ahead of event risk later tonight.

Bottom line: we’ll favor buying pullbacks in the pair with a breach/close above 1.09 targeting subsequent resistance objectives. A break below 1.0767 invalidates this particular setup with such a scenario risking a deeper correction back towards the January 2014 trendline support.

Caution is warranted heading into the interest rate decision tonight with the event likely to fuel added volatility in kiwi crosses. Look for a reaction to either validate a breach above key resistance or possibly trigger a near-term correction lower to offer more favorable long entries heading into the start of August trade.Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week with DailyFX on Demand.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
