NZD/USD Rebounds After Piercing Line Pattern Offered Bullish Signal

NZD/USD Rebounds After Piercing Line Pattern Offered Bullish Signal

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bullish Candlestick Pattern Generates Strong Rebound
  • Breach of 0.7730 Needed Open ’12 Low Near 0.7450

NZD/USD has been propelled higher after a Piercing Line pattern suggested the bulls were looking to return. Yet, within the context of a broader downtrend on the daily a sustained advance may prove difficult. A close below the pair’s recent lows would set the scene for a descent on the 2012 low near 0.7450.

The sharp ascent for the Kiwi in intraday trade was preceded by a pair of Dojis that denoted hesitation by the bears. Despite some selling pressure appearing at 0.7900 there remains an absence of bearish candlesticks. This in turns casts some doubt over the potential for a correction over the session ahead.
