NZD Analysis and Talking Points

  • NZDUSD | Key Resistance to Curb Upside
  • NZDJPY | Cluster of DMAs Offering Resistance
  • AUDNZD | Fibo Support Holding, Downside Momentum Easing

See our Q1Technical FX forecast

NZDUSD | Key Resistance to Curb Upside

Upside in the pair has once again stalled at the descending trendline from April 2018 peak, which is situated at 0.6870. This also coincides with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level (0.6857), offering another layer of resistance for NZDUSD. Consequently, failure to break above, raises scope for a move back towards 0.6700 handle. However, momentum indicators remain somewhat marginally bullish, although, as such, a firm break above key resistance could see 0.7000.

NZDJPY | Cluster of DMAs Offering Resistance

Friday’s breakout of the recent range sees NZDJPY now eyeing a cluster of DMAs from 0.7500-0.7545, which could curb further upside in the cross. Alongside this, bullish momentum indicators have slowed, suggesting that the cross may begin to see a slight pullback.

AUDNZD | Fibo Support Holding, Downside Momentum Easing

While momentum indicators suggest that risks remain tilted to further downside, this has somewhat slowed in recent sessions with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (1.0470) holding for now. A closing break below however, likely to spark retest of 1.04. Topside resistance is situated at 1.05, where bullish momentum may begin to pick up provided that AUDNZD can sustain a breach through 1.0550 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement).
