Broader Technical Outlook: Last month we highlighted the risk for a pullback in Kiwi heading into the RBNZ interest rate decision with the subsequent decline now coming into our final target at slope support / 7155. Note that the pair marked an outside-day reversal off resistance at 7300 early in the week, keeping the short-bias in play. That said, the focus is on this confluence support region heading into tomorrow’s key event risk.

Heading into the Non-Farm Payrolls release, the immediate short-bias is at risk while above the 100% extension at 7119. Interim resistance stands at 7214/19 backed by 7254 with our bearish invalidation level steady at 7296. Ultimately we would be looking to sell a rally with a break lower targeting subsequent support objectives at 7086, 7050 & the median-line confluence just above the 70-handle.

Notes: There’s Power in Parallels - we’ve been tracking this decline for the past few weeks and Kiwi has continued to respect this slope off the September high. The pair is marking bullish divergence into these lows and we’ll be on the lookout for a near-term rebound in price. From a trading standpoint, heading into tomorrow’s event risk I would be looking to fade strength into structural resistance.
