GBPNZD: Explosive Pattern Taking Shape at Critical Levels

GBPNZD: Explosive Pattern Taking Shape at Critical Levels

Highlights:

  • GBPNZD wedge forming, pointing to a potential 600 pip move
  • Wedge taking shape near critical long-term support
  • Breakout could occur in either direction, targeting 20150/18750

GBPNZD price action is creating a powerful pattern in a zone of significant support dating back almost exactly one year. It has bounced nearly a dozen times from the 19241-19400 zone since May 2014, with most of those rebounds occurring from the mid-19300s.

Further adding to the technical landscape is the contraction in the price range since late March, forming a descending triangle. The combination of key support and an explosive pattern has this trader on high alert. Should it hold this key area once again and take out the top-side of the triangle we could see a sharp multi big figure move higher. To the contrary, should sellers gain control pushing it through this all-important support zone, then we will likely see the cross move swiftly lower. The height of the triangle is 600 pips, providing measured move targets of approximately 20150 or 18750.
