NZDUSD Bullish Shift and AUDUSD Bullish Threat

nzdusd chart

  • The US$ is generally weaker across major currencies in April, with a shift back towards more of a “risk on” scenario” with the Yen also weakening alongside US Treasuries.
  • For NZDUSD, the push above key .7355 resistance has reflected this shift to a “risk on” bias, signalling an intermediate-term range breakout for a bullish intermediate-term theme.
  • The late March AUDUSD surrender of .7710 shifted the intermediate-term outlook to bearish, but the April recovery above .7785 has set a neutral theme, with risk skewed for of a bullish intermediate-term shift above .7916.

NZDUSD Upside forces intact

A Friday rally and setback for a bearish outside daily pattern, and a likely dip on the open this week, but whilst above .7301 we still see the bull theme from early April, aiming higher again Monday.
