NZD/USD Retreat To Continue Following Bearish Candlestick Signals
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Harami pattern near 0.8700 suggests the potential for a pullback
- Dark Cloud Cover signals potential dip in the session ahead
The Kiwi’s recent run has stalled at the 0.8700 handle with a slight pullback offering the formation of a Harami pattern. The signal awaits confirmation from a second down-day which would suggest a correction back to the psychologically-significant 0.8600 level.
