NZD/USD Loses Steam As Reversal Pattern Forms On The Daily
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Bearish Engulfing forming on the daily
- Evening star warns of declines in intraday trade
The Kiwi may be set to give back some more of its recent gains as a Bearish Engulfing pattern appears to be forming on the daily. However, critically the key reversal signal requires the current candle to close and ideally a second down-day to offer confirmation. A pullback would likely be met by buying support at the psychologically-significant 0.8600 handle.
