NZD/USD Hits Multi-Year High Following Bullish Candlestick Pattern
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Recovery negates bearish patterns
- Bullish Engulfing formation opens 0.8840
NZD/USD hit multi-year highs in earlier trade following the emergence of a Bullish Engulfing pattern on the daily. This acts to nullify several bearish candlestick formations including the Harami near 0.8740. A daily close above 0.8740 signals enough conviction amongst traders to open the 2011 high at 0.8840.

The four hour chart reveals some hesitation amongst traders, denoted by several Doji candlesticks near the May high at 0.8775. However, the pattern may not be enough to signal a correction over the session ahead, particularly given support likely remains at the 0.8690/0.87000 mark.
