Focus Chart of the Day: NZD/USD

Price & Time: NZD/USD - Fibonacci Attraction Awaits

NZD/USD broke below the measured move of the April-June decline around .6500 to record a new low for the year on Wednesday. It remains to be seen whether this is just a simple re-test of last month’s low or a push to more important support around .6400. We tend to favor the latter as the .6400 area marks the 61.8% retracement of the “Global Financial Crisis” low recorded in March of 2009 and looks to be a clear downside attraction for the market. The 261.8% extension of the March to April advance also comes in around .6225 so the lower .6000’s in kiwi is shaping up to be a potentially important medium-term action/reaction zone – especially given the deteriorating sentiment profile. Strength over .6610 would alleviate some of the immediate downside pressure, but only a move through last week’s high around .6735 would turn the technical outlook positive.
