New Zealand Dollar Objectives in Mid 70s
240 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
I remain bearish the NZDUSD. Divergence at the recent top combined with an impulsive decline (5 waves) and corrective advance (3 waves) gives scope to a sharp drop in either a 3rd or C wave. Objectives are the 100% extension at 7666 (also 100 day SMA) and 2/18 high) and the 7500 area – which is defined by the 61.8% retracement of the rally from 7114, 161.8% extension of the decline from the top and 200 day MA. The near term head and shoulders pattern bolsters the bearish view. The 100% extension intersects parallel channel support on May16th.
