NZDUSD Hits -3rd Standard Deviation Band
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
“A NZDUSD drop under 8057 is needed to trigger a breakout towards 7880. Until then, respect the range and potential for a more complex correction that ends above 8318.” The drop under 8057 triggers a breakout BUT expect consolidation / pullback. Price touched the -3rd standard deviation band (20 day). This is a function of a sharp move in a low volatility environment. Volatility is increasing but there will be fits and starts. While I believe this breakout, I prefer scaling in on rallies into 8050/90 with a stop above 8190. Downside levels of interest are 7880 (December resistance) and the January low at 7741.
Ideas: short on strength into 8050/90, stop 8190
