Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Hanging Man prefers shorts
  • Noteworthy resistance at 0.8340 offers potential entry
  • Targets suggested at psychologically significant levels

A Hanging Man candlestick formation on the four hour chart for NZD/USD at resistance may be warning of fresh declines for the pair. Sellers appear to be capping gains for the Kiwi at the 0.8340 level which may offer a potential entry for shorts. As noted in the most recent Kiwi candlesticks report; a Shooting Star formation on the daily had hinted at a reversal with a target of the psychologically significant 0.8300 level.
