NZD/USD Bearish Candlestick Pattern Opens 0.8500

NZD/USD Bearish Candlestick Pattern Opens 0.8500

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Shooting Star finds confirmation setting stage for declines
  • Intraday recovery may be limited by nearby resistance

NZD/USD’s pullback from the critical 0.8740 mark has seen the emergence of a Shooting Star candlestick, which may be warning of a further correction for the pair. The daily close below the psychologically-significant 0.8700 handle helps to signal enough conviction amongst the bears to open 0.8500.
