New Zealand Dollar Reaches Objective – Downside Still Favored
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
“The larger trend is down towards 7965 (reinforced by the 200 day SMA) and reward/risk on a breakout trade is favorable.” 7965 gave way without much of a fight and the NZDUSD has continued lower into channel support and the 100% extension of the decline from the August high. Despite the presence of the channel and extension, near term pattern remains bearish. Allowing for sideways trade, look lower as long as price is below 7893. The bearish channel is an objective near 7500.
