  • AUD/NZD fizzles RBNZ-led uptick to keep two-week-old support break.
  • RBNZ kept monetary policy unchanged but flashed mixed signals on economics.

Given the pair’s sustained trading below the previous support line from February 09, amid bearish MACD, AUD/NZD sellers are determined to attack the 200-bar SMA level of 1.0727.

It should, however, be noted that the quote’s weakness past-1.0727 will not hesitate to challenge the monthly bottom surrounding 1.0540.

Meanwhile, corrective pullback beyond the previous support line, at 1.0790 now, needs to cross the latest high, also the highest since January 20, 2021, around 1.0845, to convince traders.

Following that, October 2020 high near 1.0910 and the 1.10000 threshold will be in the spotlight.
