Australian and New Zealand Dollars more bullish as USD weakens

AUDUSD Chart

  • Both the Australian and New Zealand Dollars had displayed an even more bullish tone through mid-July against the US Dollar, both reflecting US Dollar weakness and emerging strength for the Antipodean currencies.
  • For AUDUSD the surge up through a long-term retracement barrier at .7878 leaves a more bullish theme into late July and August.
  • For NZDUSD the threat is to challenge the 2016 cycle high .7485.

AUDUSD – Bullish trend reinforced

Despite a setback late last week to probe at minor support at .7880, the rebound from .7874 highlight a still bullish tone from the July push to another new recovery high up close to the psychological/option target at .8000 (to .7990), sustaining the bullish trend into Monday.

Furthermore, the robust July recovery activity has re-energised the intermediate term bullish outlook.

For Today:

l We see an upside bias to .7950; above here would target .7990 and the psychological/option target at .8000, then a chart target at .8052.

l But below .7874 opens risk down to .7850, maybe towards .7784.

Intermediate-term Outlook – Upside Risks:

l We see a positive tone with the bullish threat through the psychological/ option level at .8000.

l Above here targets the 2015 high at .8164.

What Changes This? Below .7532 signals a neutral tone, only shifting negative below .7368.
