Intraday Price Perspective

A scan of this morning’s best and worst performers via the Strong/Weak app shows that the Canadian Dollar, a recent underperformer, is posting a solid rebound across the board on the day. However, over the past rolling four-hour period, we note that the major Tokyo session currencies – the Australian and New Zealand Dollars as well as the Japanese Yen – have started to decline in tandem.

Accordingly, on the lower timeframes (m15, H1, and H4), the British Pound and the Euro have becomes the top performers by a fair margin. Having recently previously examined long EURAUD and long GBPJPY, we now turn our attention to long GBPNZD. First, a look at the daily chart:

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – CHART OF THE DAY

GBPNZD Daily Chart: December 2010 to Present

- There are implications for a GBPNZD bottom developing going into 2014. The pair has traded above the descending trendline off of the 2011 and 2012 highs for the past several weeks, consolidating in a range between N$1.8860 and 2.0060.

- An Inverse Head & Shoulders pattern may be forming as well, and given the Head near 1.7700 and the Neckline near 2.0060, a move towards 2.2300/2500 would be expected over the next 18-months.

Now, a look at the H4 timeframe:

GBPNZD H4 Chart: November 1 to Present

- Going back to May 30, the GBPNZD has traded in a range between 1.8860 and 2.0060 (with a brief break higher for three days from November 28 to December 1).

- The Symmetrical Triangle (black lines) that led to a break higher in mid-November has given way to another Symmetrical Triangle since November 29 (red lines).

- RSI (21) on the H4 timeframe broke out of its downtrend and has consolidated alongside price.

- A move in price into the 1.9925/2.0060 zone, confirmed by RSI (21) climbing above 55, would suggest a break higher could be coming.

- First target on a break higher is 2.0285. Bullish bias invalidated at 1.9500.
