NZD/USD Woes May Continue With Reversal Signals Lacking

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Wave of selling pressure yields break below 0.8650
  • Absence of bullish candlesticks casts doubt on a recovery

NZD/USD’s break below 0.8650 alongside a void of bullish reversal signals suggests the pair’s woes may be set to continue. The breach of the noteworthy support level is made more significant by a spike in trading volume, suggesting a sufficient wave of selling pressure that could carry the Kiwi lower. However, given the magnitude of declines for the pair, a corrective bounce should not be precluded. This would afford new entries into short positions.

Similarly to the daily chart an absence of key reversal signals casts doubt on a recovery for the pair. However, a Doji forming near 0.8570 suggests some hesitation from the bears to push the pair lower, which could be the precursor to a consolidation over the remainder of the session.
