NZD/USD Doji Demonstrates Indecision Near Key Resistance
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Bullish Engulfing pattern put 0.8780 in sight

NZD/USD’s recent bull-run has stalled near the May high at 0.8780 with signs of hesitation from traders denoted by a Doji candlestick forming on the daily. However an absence of outright reversal patterns casts doubt on the potential for a pullback. Buyers remain prepared to support the pair at the 0.8740 mark.
