AUDNZD, EURUSD and GBPUSD TA – February 16 2017


AUDNZD intra-day analysis


AUDNZD (1.0671): The price action in AUDNZD is showing signs of stalling after the rally from late January this year sent the currency pair rising to a 4-month high. Price briefly touched the highs of 1.0705 yesterday before retreating lower to close on a bearish note. A follow-through is required, preferably with a daily bearish close below 1.0668 to confirm the declines to the downside. The correction that is likely to happen could see AUDNZD correct back to test the lower support level at 1.0540 – 1.0510, which remains untested after this level initially served as resistance. Alternately, failure to break down below 1.0668 could see AUDNZD remain range bound at the current levels with further gains coming only on support being established at 1.0668.

EURUSD intra-day analysis

EURUSD (1.0622): EURUSD posted a strong reversal from the 1.0555 support level yesterday and cleared the price level at 1.0600. Any declines could be seen limited to 1.0600 where support can be established. A higher low is required in EURUSD which will confirm the bottom ahead of a rally that will see EURUSD test 1.0700 which forms the next resistance level. The 4-hour Stochastics shows a hidden bearish divergence at the current level which suggests a short-term pullback in prices. As long as 1.0555 is not breached, EURUSD could remain a buy the dips towards 1.0700.

GBPUSD intra-day analysis

GBPUSD (1.2471): GBPUSD fell to the support level 1.2400 yesterday, but price bounced off this level by yesterday’s close. The declines came as the monthly jobs report showed that the pace of wages increased only 2.6%, slower than 2.8% registered the month before. Combined with slower than expected inflation print earlier this week saw the GBP come under pressure sending the cable down to 1.2400 level. However, the bounce off this level was rapid just as it was in early February. A continuation to the upside could be seen with 1.2600 coming in as the initial target.
