The Kiwi has broken above critical resistance at 0.8600 in recent trading with the pair forming a Morning Star pattern. While admittedly a little lopsided, the bullish candlestick formation suggests an extended recovery for the pair. The push above prior resistance at 0.8635 opens an advance on the 2014 highs near 0.8740.
