NZD/USD Bulls Lose Steam As Doji Highlights Hesitation Near 2011 High

NZD/USD Bulls Lose Steam As Doji Highlights Hesitation Near 2011 High

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Doji highlights hesitation from traders near 2011 high
  • Absence of bearish patterns casts doubt on a correction

The New Zealand Dollar has stalled after hitting a fresh multi-year high in trading yesterday. The overhanging resistance level at 0.8840 likely prompted some hesitation by the bulls to push the currency higher. Further evidence of indecision is offered by a Doji candlestick on the daily. However, the formation is insufficient to suggest a significant correction at this point.

Similarly, the NZD/USD four hour chart demonstrated indecision from traders near the 0.8830/40 mark as denoted by a Doji Candlestick. With key reversal patterns for the pair lacking a directional bias for the session ahead is unclear.
