Forex Strategy - NZD/USD Threatens Correction As Bulls Lose Out At 0.8600

Forex Strategy - NZD/USD Threatens Correction As Bulls Lose Out At 0.8600

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Shooting Star offers bearish reversal signal but awaits confirmation
  • Looking to 0.8500 as key support

The bulls have taken a breather as a Shooting Star formation on the NZD/USD threatens a correction for the pair. However caution is suggested when looking at ‘picking the top’ here given the uptrend remains intact and that there has been little downside follow-through post the bearish reversal signal. The Kiwi’s brushing aside of 2 prior Shooting Star formations during its recent run is also noteworthy. Thus waiting for a break below nearby support at 0.8500 before looking at shorts is preferred.

Looking deeper into intraday price action, the four hour chart suggests the potential for a bounce during the session ahead. This is highlighted by the Inverted Hammer candle formation near the 0.8510 mark. Yet gains may be limited given the context provided by the daily in addition to sellers likely sitting at the psychologically-significant 0.8600 level.
