  • AUD/NZD bears step back in and take out stops back into the resistance structure.
  • AUD crosses have rallied after surprise Aussie jobs report, day traders alerted to volatility. 

AUD/NZD has rallied after an impressive Aussie jobs report, superseding any positives from a beat in the New Zealand Gross Domestic Product report earlier int he day. 

The technical picture has shifted to neutral following the aggressive spike and has resulted in a breakeven trade for the AUD/NZD swing trade that was otherwise 50% on its way towards the target. 

  • AUD/NZD Price Analysis: Update, short position now risk-free for 3R

As it stands, the daily picture remains bearish in a 1,2, 3 wave setup but the 4-hour structure requires the price to not close above 1.0863.

Additionally, the new low created is too close a structure to the target for there to be an appropriate risk to reward opportunity. 

Instead, day trading strategies could take advantage of price action on a lower time frame, such as the hourly chart.
