NZDUSD Breakout or Fake-Out? Key Levels to Know Ahead of FOMC, US GDP

Notes: Kiwi has broken through the upper MLP of a formation dating back to the April highs with adherence to the proposed ascending formation off last week’s lows putting topside scalps in focus. The pair is now testing the ML / last week’s highs with a breach targeting the 100% extension at 6751 backed by the 23.6% retracement of the decline at 6790.

We’ll look to buy pullbacks / resistance triggers while above the highlighted region into the lower MLP around 6620 (bullish invalidation) with a break below 6597 needed to shift the focus back to the short-side. A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 21-23 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into key US event risk this week with the FOMC rate decision and the second read on 2Q GDP likely to fuel added volatility in dollar crosses into the end of the week / month.
