Let’s start with a bigger timeframe, MN. Here we see that in December the pair broke down out of a triangle within which it had been trading since 2015.
In January, there was an abnormal spike down which for some time stopped the pair from the further fall. However, the reprieve was only temporary. We see that AUD/NZD formed a lower high in February and then slid below the former support and now resistance area at 1.0450. The downside targets now lie at the 2017 and 2016 lows.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
