Initial resistant is at 0.6100 (round number resistance) a break here would open a move to 0.6026 (20-day EMA).

  • AUD/NZD tapped the 20-day EMA and initial support at 1.0876 on Wednesday, the pair is now hovering just below 1.0900 to be down 0.04% at 1.0896.

Initial support holds at 1.0876 (20-day EMA), while a break back above 1.0900 would open a move to 1.0957 (Apr 8 highs)
  • NZD/JPY fell just short of 92.40 pre CPI, before gapping lower to make intraday lows of 91.23 and erasing the weeks gains, the currency pared some of the losses to close Wednesday at 91.477 and now trades unchanged heading into the Asia break. Initial support is 91.19 (20-day EMA), while to the upside 91.70 (Apr 4 highs) and a break above 92.00 (round number resistance) would open a retest of the recent highs of 92.37 (Apr 10 highs)
