Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Nov 4 AUD/USD declined to lower trading zone 0.6826 – 0.6904. Later, the price pointed lower eyeing a test of the low end of the zone.
Hence, a close below the low-end may see AUDUSD correcting lower towards the vicinity of 0.6753- 44. Further close below 0.6744 could embolden sellers to press towards 0.6631. Nevertheless, the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be monitored.
That said, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone could keep the price within the range i.e. may send AUDUSD higher for a test of the high end of the zone.

NZD/USD DAILY PRICE CHART (JULY 18 – Nov 12, 2019) Zoomed In
From the daily chart, we notice on Nov 4 NZD/USD attempted to rally to the higher trading zone. However, the price failed as did two months ago, and remained in the same old trading zone 0.6236- 0.6438
Thus, the pair could be on the way for a test of the low end of the zone. Further close below 0.6224 could embolden sellers to press NZDUSD towards 0.6153. Although, the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
On the flip-side, if the price breaks and remains above the neckline of inverted head and shoulders pattern located at the high end of the zone, this may cause a rally towards 0.6565 then 0.6642. In that scenario, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.
