Technical Outlook: Last month we highlighted the threat of a major breakout in NZD/USD as price was testing yearly downtrend resistance. Kiwi ripped higher into the start of November trade with the advance now targeting pitchforkresistance of the ascending formation we’ve been tracking off the September / October lows. Key daily support rests at the 6700/15 zone (tested yesterday) with a breach above 6850 needed to fuel the next leg higher in price.

Notes: A closer look at price action shows NZD/USD trading towards the upper bounds of the ascending slope formation with resistance targets unchanged at 6811 and 6851 – a breach/close above this threshold would be needed to keep the long-bias viable with such a scenario targeting the 200-day moving average at ~6894 and the 50% retracement of the yearly range at 6930.

Initial support rests with the October slope-line (red) backed closely by near-term bullish invalidation at the weekly opening-range lows at 6700/05- weakness beyond this level would shift the focus back towards the lower parallels with initial support objectives eyed at the 38.2% retracement at 6665 and 6619/24 – both areas of interest of possible exhaustion / long-entries. Broader bullish invalidation rests at 6573.

Bottom line: NZDUSD has broken multi-month slope resistance and although the broader outlook remains constructive, the advance may be vulnerable near-term while below the upper parallel. From a trading standpoint a good place to reduce long-exposure / raise protective stops. A break below the median-line would likely fuel a larger correction and more favorable entries towards structural support. For now, look for a reaction / exhaustion on this rally towards 6850.

NZD/USD Trader Sentiment

NZD/USD Trader Sentiment
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long NZD/USD - the ratio stands at +1.49 (59.9% of traders are long) – weak bearishreading
  • Long positions are12.6% higher than yesterday and 4.5% higher from last week
  • Short positions are 12.6% lower than yesterday and 17.4% higher from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests NZD/USD prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a further mixed NZDUSD trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
