- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Bearish engulfing pattern on the daily warns of declines

While this may be warning of a potential reversal, caution is suggested when looking at shorting the NZD/USD, given the pair remains in a short-term uptrend signaled by prices being above the 20 SMA.
