What is happening on the AUD and NZD?

Tomasz Wiśniewski

Unemployment rate rose, which is bad but the Unemployment change was higher than expected. That was an information, which could have been perceived as a positive one. Despite that, AUD dropped, why? The reason for that was that this data was only partially good as most of those gains were coming from the part-time jobs. Those numbers increased the chances for a further rate cut in Australia, which is negatively affecting local currency.

First, we will show You the AUDUSD, where the bearish flag is a fact. The price broke its lower line and went down. The latest development here is the price successfully testing 0.694 as a resistance. That is a confirmation of a negative sentiment, that we mentioned yesterday.

Negative sentiment can be also seen on the AUDJPY, where instead of the double bottom formation and an upswing, the price created the pennant resulting in a downswing. Sell signal is ON.

Few words about the NZDCAD, which was on our radar for a long time. After heave drop, the correction time came and the price created the flag formation (red lines). This kind of patter, as you know, should bring us a further decline but the sell signal will be created, when the price will break its lower line.
