Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Longs preferred
  • Upside breakout eyes previous highs near 0.8515
  • Absence of bearish reversal signal suggests extended gains

The Kiwi bulls have taken charge as the NZD/USD has broken above previous range-top resistance near 0.8400. The pair is hinting at an extended advance towards its October 2013 highs near 0.8515 as a bearish reversal signal remains absent.

The advance comes off the back of a Hammer candlestick formation on the hourly chart as noted in the most recent Kiwi report. The continued gains for the pair also negate the hint of a decline on the daily chart with the posting of a Shooting Star formation, which failed to receive confirmation.
