AUD/USD, NZD/JPY Technical Outlook & More

AUD/USD, NZD/JPY Technical Outlook & More

Paul Robinson, Strategist

Charts of Interest:

  • AUD/USD set up to trade below big support
  • NZD/JPY putting in nice rectangle pattern

AUD/USD is having a difficult time getting up off of big support extending over from August. The 6700/6670-area has been a big one, with powerful rejections developing on several occasions. But the most recent test isn’t bringing much inspiration to buyers, thus leaving Aussie looking like a breakdown is nearing. A drop will leave it in search of support as you have to go back to 2008/09 to find the next major levels of price support down as far as 6000.

NZD/JPY is setting itself up for more weakness ahead with the sideways price action pointing to a failure for the market to reverse earlier weakness. There is also a good line of support to watch here around the 6995-mark. It started as resistance during a consolidation phase back from October to November, but has now become a solid line of support. A firm break through 6995 is seen as having NZD/JPY rolling downhill some more.
