AUD/NZD price analysis

Let us have a look at the technical viewpoint: 

Monthly: traded to a multi-year low of 0.9991 in March. April and May posted net gains with July’s price action leaving an indecisive Doji Style candle at the high 

Weekly: previous resistance located at 1.0865. Selling from 1.0881 resulted in all the initial weekly gains being sold into.  Mixed trading for the last nine weeks. The previous swing low is located at 1.0188 (week 31 December 2018). With this being close to the 78.6% pullback level of 1.0181 (from 0.9991 – 1.0881), we look for this to be a substantial medium-term support area. 

Daily: Strong buying pressure on the 14 and 21 July. Yesterday’s mild selloff was inside the 21 range (1.0754-1.0659). We have broken the Ichimoku Cloud formation to the upside. This now offers support at 1.0693
