NZD/USD Fails To Breach 0.8400 Barrier As Recovery Falters

Hammer Fails To Find Follow-Through On Test of 0.8400
Climb Over 0.8400 Needed To Suggest A Sustained Recovery
The Kiwi’s assault on the 0.8400 barrier has proven unsuccessful as a Shooting Star pattern warns of a further pullback. A daily close over the critical hurdle would be required to suggest the potential for a more sustained recovery for NZD/USD. However, while sub 0.8400 the recent lows near 0.8300 may be achievable.

An Evening Star pattern offered an early warning for a pullback in intraday trade. The pair appears to have found some buying interest at the 0.8343 mark. However, a void of key reversal candlesticks makes a recovery look questionable. Nonetheless traders should keep an eye on the four hour chart to indicate potential turns within what looks like a fairly narrow trading band.
