AUDNZD Technical Entry
Despite the limited time to enter the trade we have selected AUDNZD as our trade alert ahead of the Australian employment data at 01:30am GMT. We have been monitoring the FX cross for quite some time and believe the current levels are best suited for short trade with a tight protective stop loss order.

The weekly chart shows how AUDNZD has been held in a tight range with the price currently testing the upper resistance. Although it may appear we are basing the trade on the weekly chart, we simply use it a confirmation to the daily and 4hr entry we have based on our technical models. Shorting the Aussie often involves incurring a high negative swap but the Kiwi soften the hefty interest.
AUDNZD Daily Chart
The daily chart has painted a classic double-top reversal pattern with minor negative divergence in the technical indicators. There is a moderate potential a whipsaw reaction to the employment data, taking the Aussie higher before posting a swift retracement. We are willing to absorb the drawdown should it take place due to the decent Risk Ratio (RR) of the short trade. AUDNZD has the potential for retracing over +300 pips within a relatively short period of time, which is why we are attracted to taking the trade despite its close proximity to the Australian economic data.
