NZD/USD Hanging Man Candlestick Warns Of A Deeper Pullback
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Hanging Man Confirmation Warns Of Further Weakness
- Short Body Candles Suggests Indecision In Intraday Trade
NZD/USD’s pullback has produced a Hanging Man formation which has received confirmation from an ensuing down-day. The key reversal signal may warn of a deeper correction for the pair with strong buying interest likely to be renewed at the lows near 0.7730. Yet some skepticism over a sustained move lower may be warranted given recent ‘messy’ price action.

The four hour chart inspires less confidence in the prospect of a sustained pullback for the Kiwi. Messy intraday price action and a string of short-body candles suggests indecision from traders. Some intraday buying support appears evident at the 0.7895 floor, which if broken could open a retreat to the 0.7790 barrier.
