AUD/NZD has responded well of late to key cycle turning points. The low in mid-July, for instance, came almost exactly 8.6 years from the major low in 2005. We think there is a good chance that the turn will mark an important low. However, we do see some cyclical headwinds over the next few weeks which should see the cross come under a bit of pressure as it enters a corrective phase. The daily chart shows a potential head & shoulders pattern that if triggered on a move under 1.0920 will confirm that at least a minor top is in place. We like selling the cross on a break of 1.0920 for quick counter-trend trade. The 200-day moving average near 1.0835 and the 61.8% retracement of the July/August advance at 1.0785 are clear downside attractions.
