  • AUD/NZD wobbles around two-week top after New Zealand’s Q3 employment data.
  • MACD conditions suggest further recovery towards 1.0745/50 resistance confluence.
  • Sellers will have multiple rests before revisiting the July low.

AUD/NZD seesaws around a 10-day high of 1.0720 during the early Asian session on Wednesday. In doing so, the quote struggles to justify the mixed third quarter (Q3) employment data from New Zealand.

However, the pair is above 200-day EMA with the MACD flashing the most bullish signals since October 12, which in turn keeps the buyers hopeful.

As a result, a confluence of 100-day EMA and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of July-August upside near 1.0745/50 gains the AUD/NZD bulls’ attention.

In a case where the AUD/NZD prices surpass 1.0750 on a daily closing, a downward sloping trend line from August 18, at 1.0835 now, will be in the spotlight.

Alternatively, the 1.0630 and the 1.0600 round-figures can entertain short-term sellers ahead of probing them with the October month’s low near 1.0595/90.

Also acting as a filter to the AUD/NZD downside is the July month’s bottom close to 1.0560.
