Talking Points


AUD/NZD Pullback Testing Pivotal Support

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Broader Technical Outlook

We’ve been tracking this trade for some time now on SB Trade Desk with the breach & re-test of former slope resistance at 1.0724 earlier in the month shifting the focus to the topside on AUDNZD. The advance has now taken out a key confluence region at 1.1010/20 where the 100DMA, the 61.8% retracement and a long-term trendline extending off the January 2014 low converge.

Immediate support is eyed here with our general outlook remaining constructive while above 1.0910/20. A breach higher targets resistance objectives at 1.1113/15, 1.1213 & trendline resistance dating back to March 2011 high ~1.13.


AUD/NZD Pullback Testing Pivotal Support

Notes: AUDNZD has been trading within the confines of a well-defined ascending median-line formation with the pullback now testing confluence support at 1.1010/20 (note the weekly open at 1.1019). A break below this mark risks a decline back towards support objectives at 1.0966 & the 50% retracement at 1.0920 with a break sub 1.0861 needed to shift the focus back to the downside.

Interim resistance stands at 1.1080 backed by targets at 1.1113 and the upper median-line parallel / 1.1164. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets o 24-26 pips per scalp. Added caution is warranted heading into New Zealand Trade Balance data later tonight & the RBA Interest Rate decision early next week, with the releases likely to fuel volatility in Kiwi & Aussie crosses, respectively. As we approach thin holiday illiquid conditions, it's worth reviewing principles that help protect your capital. We call these principles the "Traits of Successful Traders."
