NZD/USD Technical Analysis – Upswing Stalled Below 0.87

NZD/USD Technical Analysis – Upswing Stalled Below 0.87

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8634 (61.8% Fib ret.), 0.8590 (50% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance:0.8690 (76.4% Fib ret.), 0.8745 (double top)

The New Zealand Dollar is in digestion mode after launching a sharp rally against its US namesake following a hawkish RBNZ monetary policy announcement. Initial resistance comes in at 0.8690, the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement. A daily close above this barrier exposes the April 10 high at 0.8745, a level that has acted has acted as a double top. Near-term support is at 0.8634, the 61.8% Fib. A turn below that opens the door for a test of the 50% Fib at 0.8590.

Current positioning does not offer an actionable trade signal at this point. We will opt to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a more attractive opportunity to present itself.
