GBP/NZD - Building Momentum for Another Attempt at Resistance
GBP/NZD Price, Charts and Analysis:
- Trend support remains in place and driving prices higher.
- GBP/NZD eyes another attempt at horizontal resistance.
GBP/NZD Price – Medium-Term Rally May Not be Over Yet
GBP/NZD has been on an upward trajectory since the start of the year and a series of higher lows remain in place, adding to the bullish outlook for the pair. Trendline support remains in place and has provided an uplift every time it has been approached, aided recently by the 20-day moving average and given support by the medium- and longer-dated averages. The pair made a fresh four-month high on January 31, just, but was unable to consolidate this move and fell back into trend support.
A move back towards the 2.0105 – 2.0180 zone – trend support and the 20-dma – may offer a fresh upside opportunity if the recent pattern holds. This would then suggest a re-test of the recent highs between 2.0420 and 2.0440 before 2.0560 comes into view. GBP/NZD would then be back into the monthly sell-off candle from June 2016 (Brexit) which fell from 2.1390 to a low of 1.8850.
If support fails to hold, a break and close below 2.0000 would suggest that the current bullish set-up is invalidated and trade set-ups need to be looked at again.
