NZD/USD 2-Hour

NZDUSD Rally at Risk Sub 7975- Scalps Target Near-term Correction

Notes: On the third of November we noted that kiwi had come into a major level of support at the 2013 lows with our bias to sell rallies while below 7800. The pair pushed into a new low at 7660 before rebounding sharply through the monthly opening range high- shifting our medium-term focus back to the topside.

Intra-week divergence at the weekly opening range high just below the 1.618% extension of the advance off the monthly lows has us looking lower near-term against 7975. Look for a break of this embedded pitchfork to open up short scalps into the weekly opening range lows / support at 7891-7900 & 7840/47 where we would start to look for more favorable long entries.

Bottom line: looking to sell rallies while below 7975 with a move below the weekly opening range low offering further validation for our near-term directional bias. Keep in mind that the monthly opening range broke last week with the breach above 7840 and the broader tendency is to buy pullbacks in the kiwi heading into the latter part of the month while above that level. Use caution heading into the close of the week with inflation data out of the US likely to fuel added volatility in USD based pairs.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
