NZD/USD Holds Resistance Ahead of RBNZ- FOMC Spurs Relief USD Bounce

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • NZD/USD continues to threaten the downward trend carried over from October as the bullish RSI momentum gathers pace; close above 0.7730 (78.6% retracement) may open up the 2015 high (0.7888).
  • Even though the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) is widely expected to keep the cash rate at 3.50%, the fresh batch of commentary from Governor Graeme Wheeler may dampen the appeal of the higher-yielding currency should the central bank head toughen the verbal intervention on the kiwi.
  • Nevertheless, DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-short NZD/USD since April 27, with the ratio currently sitting at -1.54.

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar holds February low (11,736) as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) stays on course to normalize monetary policy & anticipates a stronger recovery later this year.
  • Seems as though the Fed is buying more time amid the weakness in the first-quarter GDP figure, but the ongoing series of lower highs & lows in price raises the risk for a further decline in the greenback.
  • Failed attempts to break/close below 11,721 (38.2% retracement) to 11,745 (50.0% retracement) may produce a near-term bound in USDOLLAR, but the downside remains favorable as long as the bearish RSI momentum remains in play.Join DailyFX on Demand for Real-Time SSI Updates!
