AUD/NZD Price Forecast: Technical outlook
The 1-hour chart depicts the AUD/NZD pair is trading within the 1.0450-80 range. The simple moving averages (SMA’s) are below the spot price, suggesting the pair has an upward bias, but as long as it remains below 1.0500 remains at risk of further downside pressure. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) momentum indicator at 58 aims higher, confirming the upward bias.
Nevertheless, a clear break above 1.0500 would open the door for further gains. In that outcome, the first resistance level would be the R3 pivot point level at 1.0521. A breach of the latter could expose 1.0562, followed by 1.0600.
On the flip side, a sustained break below 1.0450 could open the door for AUD/NZD sellers to push the pair towards 1.0400.
