Yesterday, GBP/NZD traded below the bullish trendline support originating from the July 7 low at 1.9021, indicating that bearish momentum was still in place.

With that said, the price developed a Double Bottom pattern reflecting a possible reversal on the horizon. A break above the neckline of this pattern located at 1.9140 could reverse the pair’s direction higher.

To conclude, this week the pair resumed bearish price action, although the price/RSI divergence discussed above on the daily chart provides a good base of a possible reversal. Therefore, a break above aforementioned neckline resistance could trigger a rally towards the high end of the current trading zone discussed above at 1.9217. A break below 1.8943 may send GBPNZD towards 1.8850. As such, the weekly support and resistance levels underlined on the four-hour chart should be considered.
