NZD/USD Doji Candlestick Signals Bulls Losing Confidence
- Strategy: Flat
- Doji Suggests Bulls May Have Lost Some Steam
- H4 Timeframe Reveals Reluctance From The Bulls
NZD/USD has seemingly lost some upward momentum as signaled by a Doji candlestick. As noted in recent reports a clean ascent was to prove challenging given the context of a medium-term downtrend. A more definitive reversal pattern would suggest the bears have regained their grip on prices. This would turn the risks lower for a retest of the lows at 0.7650.

An Evening Star pattern on the four hour chart offered an intraday warning that the Kiwi was turning. A breach of nearby buying support at the 0.7830 floor would potentially set the wheels in motion for a descent on 0.7660.
