Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Bearish Engulfingpattern opens drop to 0.8600
  • 4 hour chart shows few signs of a potential bounce

The Kiwi bears have taken a breather near the psychologically-significant 0.8600 handle, with a Doji formation suggesting signs of hesitation from traders to push the currency lower. However, it may be too soon to call for a bounce, given a bullish signal remains lacking on both the daily and four hour charts.
