AUD/USD, NZD/USD Outlook: Price Recovery Faces Key Resistance Levels

Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday AUD/USD returned to the same old trading zone abandoned on Friday 0.6631- 0.6744. Therefore, the price may need to close above 50-day average to talk about a possible rally towards 0.6826.

It's worth mentioning the bullish divergence between (RSI) and the price, as AUDUSD created a low with a lower low meanwhile, we find a low with a higher low on the oscillator.

Additionally, AUDUSD could rally towards 0.7000 handle, if breaks and remains above the neckline of a double bottom pattern residing at 0.6894 as shown on the chart (zoomed in). In that scenario, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart need to be monitored along the way.

On the other hand, any close below the low end of the zone could resume bearish price action towards 0.6594.

From the daily chart, we notice on Oct 1 NZD/USD declined to its lowest level in a decade. However, the price remained in the current trading zone 0.6236- 0.6438 indicating to seller’s hesitation to keep pressing the price at this stage.
