Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Strategy: Flat
  • Kiwi Rebound Extends for Third Week
  • Upswing to Yield Selling Opportunity

The New Zealand Dollar continued higher for a third consecutive week against its US counterpart having bottomed after setting a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Resistance is now at 0.7567, the intersection of channel resistance-turned-support and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that exposing the 38.2% Fib at 0.7809. Alternatively, a reversal back below 0.7418 targets the January low at 0.7175.

The overall NZD/USD trend continues to favor the downside. With that in mind, we will look to any on-coming gains as an opportunity to establish a short position at more attractive levels once the upswing is exhausted.
