Focus Chart of the Day: NZD/USD

Price & Time: Kiwi Trades at Near 5-Year Low

NZD/USD recorded its lowest level in almost 5-years on Friday as the exchange rate continues to fall along the median line channel connecting the April high and mid-May swing points. While the break to new multi-year lows obviously keeps the exchange rate in a pretty negative position, some caution is warranted as we near .7000. In addition to being psychologically significant, this area also marks a convergence of the 127% extension of the March – April and the 161.8% projection of the late April – mid May decline and is a clear potential reaction zone in the rate. It is also worth pointing out that the latter half of the week looks fairly significant from a cyclical perspective and a reversal (or at least an attempt at one) looks possible around this time. The March low around .7160 is now resistance and traction above there is needed to undermine the near-term negative technical structure.
