Forex: NZD/USD Technical Analysis – Topping Below 0.86 Figure?

Forex: NZD/USD Technical Analysis – Topping Below 0.86 Figure?

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8474 (23.6% Fib ret., trend line), 0.8393 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 0.8582 (100% Fib exp.), 0.8663 (123.6% Fib exp.)

New Zealand Dollar may be hinting at a forthcoming top against its US namesake as prices show a Shooting Star candlestick below resistance at 0.8582, the 100% Fibonacci expansion. Near-term support is at 0.8474, the intersection of the 23.6% Fib retracement and a rising trend line set from early February. A break below this boundary targets the 38.2% level at 0.8393. Alternatively, a reversal above resistance aims for the 123.6% expansion at 0.8663.

A Shooting Star candle is a sign of indecision and is not by itself an actionable selling signal. We will stand aside for now, looking for confirmation on a break below trend line support to look for a short trade opening.
