NZD/USD Awaiting Break Of 0.8400 With Reversal Signals Lacking
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Absence of Reversal Signals Suggests Recovery Unlikely
- Daily Close Below 0.8400 To Open The 0.8260 Floor
The New Zealand Dollar has finally cracked the 0.8460 barrier with a void of bullish reversal signals suggesting a recovery may be unlikely. A push past the nearby 0.8400 floor would set the scene for a descent towards the mid-February lows near 0.8260. However, subdued trading volume thus far to accompany the move warrants some skepticism and could be suggestive of a consolidation for the Kiwi.
