New Zealand Dollar Resistance at 7885
60 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The drop below 7813 satisfies minimum expectations for wave C from 7991. Last week’s I wrote that “expectations are for 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.” I’ll favor weakness unless the rally from the low unfolds in an impulsive manner. Like the AUDUSD, it is possible that a larger flat or triangle is underway from the May high. Near term resistance is 7885-7920.
