NZD/JPY, NZD/CAD, NZD/CHF, NZD Technical Outlook - Talking Points:

  • NZD/JPY could extend declines after carving out a potential Double Top reversal pattern at key resistance.
  • NZD/CAD may be running out of steam as the RSI diverges with price at a pivotal inflection point.
  • NZD/CHF looks to be carving out a Descending Triangle pattern at the monthly high. Could a downside break be on the cards.

New Zealand Dollar Index** Weekly Chart – Impending Reversal or Topside Break?

**NZD Index averages USD/NZD, JPY/NZD, EUR/NZD, GBP/NZD

The New Zealand Dollar’s 15.5% surge from the March low (0.6740) could be coming to an end, as price struggles to break above the 2017 downtrend and the RSI fails to climb above 60 into bullish territory.

With the development of price and the RSI eerily similar to the five previous occasions NZD tested key resistance, a significant pull-back looks to be on the cards.

However, price has remained relatively resilient over the last 4 weeks, camping within range resistance as a series of weekly Doji candles hint at indecisiveness in the future direction of the trade-sensitive currency.

Nevertheless, the path of least resistance seems to be lower as the sentiment-defining 200-week moving average (0.7922) begins to slope to the downside, potentially coralling price back to support at the 50-week moving average (0.7520).

NZD/JPY Daily Chart – Double Top Reversal or Ascending Triangle

New Zealand Dollar Outlook: NZD/JPY, NZD/CAD, NZD/CHF Levels to Watch

NZD/JPY daily chart created using TradingView

The NZD/JPY exchange rate may extend its declines after carving out a potential Double Top reversal pattern at the June high (71.67).

Although a close below uptrend support and the psychologically imposing 70 level is needed to validate the bearish reversal pattern, the distinct divergence between price and the RSI suggests that bullish impetus may be fading.

With that in mind, a break and close below 4-month trend support could signal the resumption of the 6-year downtrend extending from the 2014 high (94.05), possibly opening up a path for price to test sentiment defining support at the 200-day moving average (68.78).

On the other hand, with the uptrend from the yearly low (59.49) still intact price could continue to trek higher as the 50-DMA (69.23) crosses over its ‘slower’ 200-period counterpart (68.78), potentially intensifying buying pressure and resulting in a retest of the monthly high (71.67).

NZD/CAD Daily Chart – Divergence at Key Resistance Hints at Impending Reversal

NZD/CAD daily chart created using TradingView

Similar to its NZD/JPY counterpart, the NZD/CAD exchange rate is struggling to break above long-term trend resistance as the RSI fails to follow price to higher highs.

However, price remains constructively perched above psychological support at the 0.89 level, signaling a potential retest of the yearly high (0.8979) could be in the offing.

A daily close above the 2016 downtrend and July high (0.8979) is needed to validate bullish potential, and potentially carve a path to resistance at the 0.91 level.

Conversely, failure to break to fresh yearly highs may invigorate sellers and poossibly fuel a correction back to 4-month trend support and the July 15 low (0.8844).

NZD/CHF Daily Chart – 2019 Downtrend Stifling Buying Pressure

New Zealand Dollar Outlook: NZD/JPY, NZD/CAD, NZD/CHF Levels to Watch

NZD/CHF daily chart created using TradingView

The NZD/CHF exchange rate may be carving out a Descending Triangle pattern at key resistance, as price consolidates between resistance at the 2015 low weekly close (0.6210) and support at the June 12 low (0.6041).

The path of least resistance seems to be to the downside, as the RSI tracks its constructive downtrend and dives back below its neutral midpoint.

A daily close below the 50-DMA (0.6106) could lead price back to psychological support at the 0.6050 level.

However, a break below the June 12 low (0.6041) is needed to validate bearish potential and carve a path for price to retest the April high (0.5995).
