NZD/USD Dramatic Turn Leaves Bullish Pattern In Its Dust

NZD/USD Dramatic Turn Leaves Bullish Pattern In Its Dust

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bullish Engulfing Formation Emerges After Rebound
  • Dragonfly Doji Suggests Indecision In Intraday Trade

NZD/USD’s impressive about-face has produced a Bullish Engulfing formation on the daily. Critically, the key reversal pattern awaits confirmation from an ensuing up-day to raise the probability of a more sustained advance. A close above the psychologically-significant 0.8000 handle would open the prospect of a run on the 0.8060 ceiling.

A Dragonfly Doji near 0.8000 signals reluctance from the bulls to lead the Kiwi higher in intraday trade. Yet an absence of classic reversal patterns leaves the prospect of a pronounced pullback over the session ahead as questionable. An intraday retreat is likely to find buying interest renewed at the 0.7950 floor.
