NZD/USD Bounce Sees Bullish Reversal Pattern Forming
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Harami pattern awaiting confirmation shy of key resistance
- Bullish Engulfing pattern puts the 0.8700 handle in focus
The Kiwi look set to post a Harami formation as the currency’s sharp drop finds a soft landing around the 0.8670 mark. If confirmed by the close of the candle and a successive up-day the pattern could suggest a potential recovery for NZD/USD. However, this may prove difficult with the psychologically-significant 0.8700 handle looming overhead.
