NZD/USD: Near-term Range Braces for RBNZ; Key Resistance 7450

Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: Heading into the RBNZ interest rate decision shortly after the New York close, Kiwi continues to hold below former trendline support, now resistance. On whole the pair has setup a well-defined weekly opening-range and we’ll be looking for a break heading into the release.

Kiwi is now testing resistance on the back today’s FOMC policy meeting with a breach here targeting 7390 & key resistance at the 2016 high-day close at 7449. Interim support rests at 7292/96 backed by the weekly & monthly opens at 7248/56- a break below this region would be needed to shift the focus lower targeting 7218 & the 61.8% retracement at 7155. From a trading standpoint, I would be looking for near-term strength to offer favorable short entries while below the high-day close. For the complete setup and to continue tracking this trade & more throughout the week- Subscribe to SB Trade Desk.
