NZD/USD Continues Cautious Advance With A Bullish Pattern In Its Wake
- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Candlestick Pattern Offers Bullish Signal
- Harami Awaiting Validation On H4
NZD/USD has continued its cautious creep higher in the wake of a Harami candlestick formation. While bearish reversal signals remain lacking some skepticism over a further advance may be warranted given ‘messy’ price action over the past several weeks. This suggests a consolidation may be a more likely path for the pair with sellers likely to re-emerge at the 0.8000 handle.

The four hour chart suggests some indecision from traders near the 0.7960 ceiling, as denoted by a Doji formation. However with bearish formations lacking the potential for a pullback over the session ahead is questionable. Buying interest is evident at former support-turned-resistance at 0.7902.
