Forex: NZD/USD Technical Analysis – March High Marks Resistance

Forex: NZD/USD Technical Analysis – March High Marks Resistance

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8502 (76.4% Fib exp.), 0.8452 (61.8% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 0.8522 (Mar 7 high), 0.8582 (100% Fib exp.)

The New Zealand Dollar is making a strong case for continued gains against its US namesake after prices took out resistance at 0.8502 – the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion – following the RBNZ interest rate decision. A push above the March 7 high at 0.8522 aims for the 100% Fib at 0.8582. Alternatively, a reversal back below 0.8502 eyes the 61.8% level at 0.8452.

Risk/reward considerations argue against taking a long position with prices trading squarely at relevant resistance. On the other hand, a short position taken on the assumption that resistance will hold seems premature without a defined reversal signal. We will continue to stand aside for now.
