AUD/NZD chart - Trading View
AUD/NZD was trading 0.04% lower on the day at 1.0434 at around 06:10 GMT.
Previous Week's High/ Low: 1.0611/ 1.0476
Previous Session's High/ Low: 1.0464/ 1.0417
Antipodeans withdrew sharply overnight from multi-month peaks after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) stepped in to defend its yield target.
The RBA offered to buy A$1 billion of its targeted April 2024 government bond, pulling the yield back down to 0.14%, after it had strayed as high as 0.21% - against a target of 0.1%.
Commodity prices cooled and as a sharp sell-off in Antipodean bond markets eased, the antipodeans cooled from red hot levels.
- Price action grinds sideways between 21-EMA and 50-DMA
- Back-to-back Doji formations on the daily charts suggests indecision
- Momentum is bearish, RSI is below the 50 mark
Major Support and Resistance Levels:
Support - 1.0422 (50-DMA), Resistance - 1.0461 (21-EMA)
Summary: AUD/NZD is likely to extend sideways as price action remains capped between major moving averages. Breakout will provide a clear directional bias.
