NZD/USD Bearish Pattern Falls Flat As Consolidation Endures

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Bearish Formation Finds Little Follow-Through
  • Doji On H4Suggests Indecision In Intraday Trade

NZD/USD has seen disappointing follow-through to a bearish candlestick formation. The Bearish Engulfing pattern has failed to receive confirmation from a successive-down day. This may suggest the Kiwis’ directionless sideways drift may continue. A break of the nearby 0.7730 floor would be required to offer a bearish bias and open the next leg lower for the currency.

The four hour chart is showing signs of indecision from traders in the form of a Doji formation. Yet an absence of more definitive reversal signals leaves a clear directional bias lacking.
