Antipodeans (AUD and NZD) Stay Strong Versus the US Dollar

Technical Analysis

Both the Australian and new Zealand Dollars continue to make upside headway versus the US currency into April, to maintain underlying bullish themes from Q1.

AUDUSD and NZDUSD dips have allowed modestly overbought momentum conditions to correct, whilst leaving support intact. This leaves the bias for new recovery highs for AUD and NZD vs. USD into the balance of April.

AUDUSD

Another push higher Wednesday, building on the rebound effort from early April (ahead of support at .7474, from .7489), to approach the key .7723/38 resistance area, and despite the setback from just below here (.7716), we still see the immediate risk higher Thursday.

For Thursday/ Friday:

  • We see an upside bias for the key .7716/23/38 area; break here aims for .7800.
  • But below .7620/15 opens risk down to .7525.

Short/ Intermediate-term Outlook – Upside Risks: The break above .7243 set a bull theme.

  • We see a positive tone with the bullish threat to .7738.
  • Above here targets.7849 and .8000.

What Changes This? Below .7411 signals a neutral tone, only shifting negative below .7106.

For Thursday/ Friday:
