NZD/USD Pullback From 0.8000 Produces Hanging Man Candlestick

NZD/USD Pullback From 0.8000 Produces Hanging Man Candlestick

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bullish Engulfing Formation Lacks Confirmation
  • Hanging Man Emerges After Retreat From 0.8000

NZD/USD’s recent retreat has failed to offer confirmation to a Bullish Engulfing pattern and has instead yielded a Hanging Man. This has left the pair trapped below the 0.8000 barrier and lacking positive cues from candlesticks. A close above the psychologically-significant 0.8000 handle would be required to offer a more constructive setup and open the prospect of a run on the 0.8060 ceiling.

The four hour chart reveals ‘messy’ price action with a void of clear cues from candlesticks. This does little to offer a directional bias over the session ahead. An advance is likely to be met by renewed selling interest at the 0.7995/0.8000 barrier.
