The NZDUSD range is tightening and the next move may be a pop above 8381 in order to complete a flat correction from the 9/6 low. A move above 8381 would present a short opportunity against the 8/31 high of 8570. Notice the specter of a head and shoulders continuation pattern. Like the AUDUSD, the larger trend is down towards 7965 (reinforced by the 200 day SMA) and reward/risk on a breakout trade is favorable.
