The Australian dollar fell after the RBA held interest rates for a second straight month amid cooling inflation. The pair’s previous struggle to stay above 0.6720 forced buyers to liquidate their positions in a sharp sell-off. A subsequent bounce has failed to turn the tide by stopping short in the former accumulation area around 0.6740. The daily support of 0.6600 is an important level to see if buyers make their way back or the Aussie could retreat into a M-shaped dip towards 0.6500. 0.6660 is the first hurdle to lift in case of a rebound.

The New Zealand dollar slipped after an uptick in the Q2 unemployment rate. A break below the demand zone formed by a consolidation area in early July has brought into question the validity of the rally last month. A brief bounce hit resistance at 0.6220, suggesting that the path of least resistance might be down. A fall below 0.6120 would expose the daily swing low of 0.6050. The RSI’s oversold condition may attract some bargain hunters but the buy side will need to clear 0.6220 before they could push back.
