Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bearish engulfing pattern on the daily warns of declines
  • Given the short-term uptrend caution suggested when looking at shorts

The Kiwi’s bull-run has been halted at the 0.8635 level of resistance which has resulted in the emergence of a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern on the daily. While this may be warning of a potential reversal, caution is suggested when looking at shorting the NZD/USD, given the pair remains in a short-term uptrend signaled by prices being above the 20 SMA.
