NZD/USD Struggles Near Recent Lows With Bullish Candlesticks Lacking
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Piercing Line Pattern Fails To Find Follow-Through
- Daily Close Below 0.8060 To Open Aug ’13 Lows
NZD/USDhas been reluctant to revisit its recent lows near 0.8060. Yet after a Piercing Line pattern failed to find confirmation a recovery for the Kiwi may also prove difficult. A daily close below the 0.8060 hurdle could open some significant room before buying interest is renewed at the August 2013 low near 0.7750. Whereas a climb above the 0.8260 hurdle would likely be required to mark a small base for the pair.
