NZD/USD to Face-Off as Wheeler Deals Rate Cut

Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: We presented this setup last night on SB Trade Desk and heading into the RBNZ interest rate decision, the kiwi remains vulnerable while below a key resistance threshold at 7292/96 – a region defined by the 2016 high-day & the March 2015 low-day closes. The pair is holding within the confines of a newly identified ascending pitchfork extending off the July low with the median-line catching today’s high.

Look for interim support at the monthly open at 7200 backed by 7180 & 7155. A break below this level would be needed to validate a more significant reversal targeting the weekly open at 7129, 7103 & the 61.8% retracement at 7067. Interim resistance stands at 7227 backed by the median-line & 7292/96.

From a trading standpoint, I would be looking to fade kiwi strength on an RBNZ rip higher while below key resistance. Ultimately the decline may offer better long-opportunities down near the 69-handle. A breach above 7300 keeps the long-bias in play with such a scenario targeting 7325, 7379/92.

NZD/USD to Face-Off as Wheeler Deals Rate Cut
  • A summary of the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI)shows traders are net short NZDUSD- the ratio stands at -2.29(30% of traders are long)-bullishreading
  • Yesterday the ratio was -1.61 - Short positions are 24.3% higher than yesterday and 40.5% above levels seen last week.
  • Open interest is 10.2% higher than yesterday and 16.2% above its monthly average
  • Retail sentiment is approaching the most extreme read of 2016 – last time we were at these levels was on July 8th (July 12th was the high in price)
  • Although an uptick short-exposure on building open interest would typically be bullish signal, I would use caution with that interpretation heading into the release as the advance approaches key resistance. This leaves room for a possible rip higher into the release before turning over.
