NZD/USD Range Tightens Under Early Month Low

Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

DailyFX Trading Guides and Forecasts

-Since reversing on 1/20, NZD/USD has retraced most of its early year decline. The rally and sideways trade since September can be interpreted as waves A and B or 1 and 2 within a new bullish cycle. That said, a prolonged period of sideways trading (in the event that trade since October is a B wave) is a possibility. Either way, last week’s high (post NFP high), defined by the 200 day average and long term trendline, is significant (important behavior change would take place on a rally through that level). Also, note that moving averages are clustered together (20, 55, and 200 are shown). The last such ‘clustering’ of these moving averages occurred exactly 2 years ago. A range break soon followed. In other words, a range contraction (and low volatility) period may soon give way to a directional trend.
