New Zealand Dollar Technical Analysis: AUD/NZD, EUR/NZD, GBP/NZD


AUD/NZD bias remains skewed to the downside as bears continue to drive price action lower. Chop during the early months of 2021 saw the formation of a head and shoulders pattern, and the break lower from the right shoulder shows no signs of stopping. Relative strength for the pair has not popped above 50 since late June, as price continues to drive lower. The pair blew right through the December 2020 low at 1.04184, and retests of that low have since failed. With relative strength nearly non-existent and the cross below key moving averages, traders may look to see continuation to the current move. Traders may eye the April 2020 low of 1.0206 as the next key support level, should this move take another leg lower.

EUR/NZD has made a sustained move lower as well, following a break of trendline support in late August. Range bound for months, EUR/NZD bears may look to the March low at 1.64867 for their next target. Declining relative strength along with an incoming death cross fails to paint a “rosy” picture for the pair. Any reversal in the pair could see a retest of the 50-day moving average (MA) or the 200-day MA. A clean break of the March swing low could potentially bring the yearly low into play at 1.63237.

From May through August, GBP/NZD found itself making multiple failed attempts to break above the key psychological 2.000 level. On each rejection, price was supported by an ascending trendline which was ultimately broken after the 4th failed attempt to breakout above 2.000. That break saw the pair trade through both the 50-day and 200-day moving averages in a swift move to the downside. Despite retaking the 200-day MA on Thursday, the formation of a bear flag appears to be taking shape, indicating that further declines may be in store in the near-term. Should a break lower materialize from the bear flag, market participants may look to the 1.9200 level for support, an area that provided strong support throughout April and May.
