NZD/USD To Continue Retreat Following Dark Cloud Cover Formation
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Dark Cloud Cover on the daily warning of continued declines
- Further falls likely to be met by buying support at 0.8600
The Dark Cloud Cover formation noted in the most recent candlesticks report has resulted in extended weakness for NZD/USD, which follows on from a failure to crack the critical 0.8740 mark last week. While the signal suggests the potential for further declines, traders should be mindful that the uptrend remains intact. A continued pullback is likely to be met by buying support at the 0.8600 handle.
