NZDUSD 240min

NZDUSD 240min Chart

Technical Outlook:The RBNZ interest rate decision is on tap in just a few hours and heading into the release the focus is on the 7010-7075 weekly opening range. Our broader outlook remains weighted to the short-side while below the upper median-line parallel / 75% line (currently ~7160s – note the 200-day moving average stands at 7151) with a break sub 6952 needed to mark a more meaningful reversal in the pair.

From a trading standpoint, I’d be looking to fade a knee-jerk reaction higher into structural resistance near the upper parallel with a break lower targeting 6900, 6861 & the 2016 open at 6828. Keep in mind that the central bank is widely expected to hold the official cash rate at 1.75% and as such, the focus will be on the accompanying commentary as it pertains to the growth outlook and signs that the underlying inflation pressures are lifting. That said, any shift in tone from Governor Wheeler could fuel some volatility here so look for the initial reaction to offer clues. A breach / close above 7200 would be needed to keep a long-bias in play and mark a more prominent breakout in the pair

NZDUSD SSI
  • A summary of the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows traders are net-long NZDUSD- the ratio stands at +1.1 (52.4% of traders are long)- weak bearish reading
  • Traders have been net-long since March 2nd when Kiwi was trading near 7116- Since then, the pair has fallen 1.2% lower
  • Long positions are 13% lower than yesterday and 32.3% lower from last week
  • Short positions are 20.2% higher than yesterday and 28.2% higher from last week
  • While SSI continues to point lower, it’s important to note that the recent build in short exposure has seen the ratio come off considerably from recent extremes seen this month and leaves the broader short-bias at risk heading into today’s release.
