Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line Pattern Offers Hope To The Kiwi Bulls
  • Awaiting Daily Close Above 0.8260 To Suggest A Base

NZD/USDhas demonstrated a promising response to a Piercing Line pattern. A successive up-day has helped confirm the bullish signal. Yet against the backdrop of a core downtrend on the daily, a complete shift in sentiment is likely to prove difficult. A climb above the 0.8260 hurdle would likely be required to mark a small base for the pair.

The four hour timeframe paints a less encouraging picture than the daily and does little to inspire hope for the Kiwi bulls. Sellers appear intent on keeping the pair capped below the 0.8210 ceiling. Coupled with a Harami pattern there is the prospect of an intraday correction for the currency.
