NZD/USD Candlestick Analysis: Waiting for Short Trade Setup

NZD/USD Candlestick Analysis: Waiting for Short Trade Setup

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Strategy: Flat
  • July 2013 Bottom Now Resistance
  • Upswing to Yield Short Trade Setup

The New Zealand Dollar continues to grind higher against its US counterpart after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. A break of support-turned-resistance at 0.7682, the June 2013 low, exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7801. Alternatively, a move back below the December 2014 bottom at 0.7608 targets the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.7495.

The overall NZD/USD trend continues to favor the downside. With that in mind, we will treat recent gains as corrective and approach them as an opportunity to enter short once the upswing is exhausted.
