AUSSIE: AUDUSD last trades at 0.7715, off of lows of 0.7706, while AUDNZD trades
at 1.0645 off of the 1.0654 high.
- Ex-Asia funds are rumoured to be the driving force behind the AUDUSD's sell
off, with option related bids in front of 0.7700, with some A$1.02bln worth of
0.7700 FX options set to roll off at today's 10AM NY cut. There is also talk of
macro sell orders between 0.7730-40.
- AUDUSD's 200-DMA (0.7815) continues to cap attempts to break higher with bulls
needing a close above the key 0.7842 level to shift attention upwards. The pair
is below the 21-DMA (0.7717), with correcting overbought studies adding weight.
Today, bulls look for a close above yesterday's hourly support level (0.7763) to
gain breathing room.
- AUDNZD's bounce from YtD lows confirmed the significance of the long term
rising daily trend line off 2015 lows (1.0474 today) with bulls now needing a
close above the 55-DMA (1.0678) to shift focus higher. Bears continue to look
for a close below the April 17 high (1.0601) to ease bullish pressure.
