AUDUSD shift bearish with NZDUSD poised for similar negative signal

Published:
Updated:

  • When we last looked at both the AUDUSD and NZDUSD spot Forex rates on 26th November we highlighted intermediate-term bullish shifts.
  • However subsequent “risk off” activity across global capital markets in reaction to concerns regarding a global slowdown has seen the US dollar rally with a flight to quality, whilst both the Australian and New Zealand Dollars have weakened.
  • For the AUDUSD currency pair, this has seen a plunge through important supports (notably .7161), which has shifted the intermediate-term outlook from bullish, to neutral and now to bearish
  • The NZDUSD Forex rates has not, as yet, seen an equivalently negative technical development, but is poised for a similarly bearish, intermediate-term signal, but only below .6751.

 

AUDUSD Intermediate-term bearish shift (as flagged)

We have stressed in recent reports that “the early December plunge below .7197 switched the intermediate-term view to a range theme (defined as .7394 to .7161), BUT with risks skewed towards an intermediate-term bearish shift” and Friday’s plunge through here now sets an intermediate-term bear trend.

Furthermore, the Friday plunge through key .7161 reinforced last week’s reluctant rebound and then failure from .7247, to keep the bias lower Monday.

For Today:

  • We see a downside bias for .7149; break here quickly aims for .7170 and key .7161.
  • But above .7195/7200 targets .7247 and opens risk up towards .7276.

Intermediate-term Outlook – Downside Risks: We see a downside risk for .7077.

  • Lower targets would be 7018/00 and .6827.
  • What Changes This? Above .7276 shifts the outlook back to neutral; above .7394 is needed for a bull theme.

Resistance and Support:

.7195/7200 .7247** .7276* .7301* .7356
.7149* .7119 7077** .7049/48* 7018***

NZDUSD Downside risks increasing

A plunge Friday out of the recent sideways consolidation through supports as low as .6790, to reinforce Wednesday’s spike lower below the .6838/34 supports and prior failure and setback again from below .6930 resistance (from .6912), PLUS the reversal down below the up trend line from late October, to leave the bias for a further selloff Monday.

The early November aggressive surge above .6618 set an intermediate-term bull trend, BUT risk is growing for a push below .6751, which would shift the intermediate-term outlook from bullish straight to bearish.

For Today:

  • We see a downside bias for .6775; break here quickly aims for key .6751, then towards .6723/22 and critical .6704.
  • But above .6825 opens risk up to .6862 and maybe .6893.

Intermediate-term Outlook – Upside Risks: We see an upside risk for be .7060.

  • Higher targets would be .7437 and .7558.
  • What Changes This? Below .6751 shifts the intermediate-term outlook from bullish straight to a bear theme.

Resistance and Support:

.6825 .6862 .6912* .6930 .6969**
.6775 .6751*** .6723/22 .6704** .6662*
