Price & Time: Looking For A Range Low In NZD/USD Next Week

Price & Time: Looking For A Range Low In NZD/USD Next Week

Talking Points

  • Turn window ahead in NZD/USD
  • Important support levels near .8400

Unfamiliar with Gann Square Root Relationships? Learn more about them HERE.

NZD/USD has been under steady pressure since peaking out at the beginning of the month near important Gann resistance at .8770 (8th square root relationship of the year-to-date low). On Wednesday the exchange rate finally closed below the late April .8515 low triggering a double top type pattern on the daily charts. According to classic technical analysis this is the time to sell. Cyclical analysis paints a different picture, however, as the next few days look quite important for the exchange rate from a timing perspective. From where we stand the rate actually looks quite vulnerable to a short-term reversal which at a minimum should give better levels to sell next month if not prompt a full on resumption higher. New trend lows in the Kiw after early next week would nullify this near-term positive outlook.
