NZD/USD

NZD/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created by David Song

  • Following the failed attempts to test the Fibonacci overlap around 0.7330 (38.2% retracement) to 0.7340 (61.8% expansion), NZD/USD stands at risk for a larger pullback amid the recent string of lower-highs in the exchange rate, while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to carve a bearish formation.
  • With the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) scheduled to release its updated forecasts ahead of the next interest-rate decision on August 11, the weaker-than-expected 2Q Consumer Price Index (CPI) print may encourage the central bank to adopt a more cautious tone for the economy as the outlook for global growth becomes increasingly clouded with uncertainty.
  • Next downside region of interest comes in around 0.6950 (38.2% retracement) to 0.6980 (38.2% expansion) followed by former resistance around 0.6890 (50% expansion) to 0.6900 (100% expansion).
DailyFX SSI
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail crowd has flipped back net-short NZD/USD on July 19, with the ratio hitting a near-term extreme earlier this month as it slid to -2.25.

NZD/USD Continues to Search for Support Ahead of RBNZ UpdateUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created by David Song

  • The near-term breakout in the USDOLLAR may gather pace over the coming days as the greenback starts to carve a series of higher highs & lows; will keep a close eye on the Relative Strength Index (RSI) as it approaches overbought territory.
  • May see second-tier data coming out of the U.S. economy curb the near-term advance in the greenback as Existing Home Sales are projected to contract 0.9% in June, but may see growing demand for USD-denominated assets especially as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) lowers its outlook for global growth.
  • Following the close above 12,049 (78.6% retracement) to 12,064 (61.8% retracement), will retain a constructive outlook for USDOLLAR, with the next topside target coming in around 12,170 (78.6% retracement) to 12,176 (78.6% expansion).
