AUD/NZD recovery halted, back under pressure

FXStreet (Córdoba) - AUD/NZD is falling again and is moving toward last week lows after the recovery of the pair lost momentum.

AUD/NZD below 1.0650

Price is consolidating below the 1.0650 area that was an important support. Now the short-term technical outlook favors the downside as price holds below the 20-MA in four hour charts.

Last week it dropped to 1.0570, reaching the lowest level since May and then bounced to the upside, starting a recovery. But it failed to hold above 1.0700 and weakened. Today it resumed the decline. So far it remained above 1.0600. Currently it trades at 1.0635, 40 pips below yesterday’s closing price.
