USD/NOK Technical Analysis: Will Pair Hold Above 8.7881 Barrier?

USD/NOK Technical Analysis: Will Pair Hold Above 8.7881 Barrier?

Dimitri Zabelin, Analyst


  • USD/NOK reached key resistance range: 8.7881-8.8244
  • Dominant uptrend to continue – small pullback ahead?
  • March 7 boost likely caused by pessimistic ECB outlook

USD/NOK recently entered into a key resistance range between 8.78810-8.8244, opening the door for possible upward gains not seen since the end of 2015. The over-one percent boost on March 7 appears to be the result of the ECB’s gloomy outlook for growth and inflation for 2019-2020.

After skyrocketing into the new range, the pair may cool down and retreat from what appears to be an outsized gain. Negative RSI divergence is signaling the pair may have a brief pullback as upside momentum gradually cools. If the lower bound of the 8.7810-8.8244 range is tested and holds with a daily close above, it could signal a strong bullish bias in the pair.

USD/NOK may find additional resolve if Norway’s GDP release tomorrow falls short of the 0.3 percent forecast. The four-hour chart shows the pair just on the edge of the lower bound of resistance. Having a daily close above this point would break a significant psychological barrier that kept the pair at bay in December and early January.
