NZD/USD Loses Steam As Reversal Pattern Forms On The Daily

NZD/USD Loses Steam As Reversal Pattern Forms On The Daily

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • 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.
