NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Oscillating Around 0.81 Figure

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Oscillating Around 0.81 Figure

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8067, 0.7998, 0.7887
  • Resistance:0.8187, 0.8255, 0.8366

The New Zealand Dollar continues to oscillate in a familiar range around the 0.81 figure against its US namesake. Near-term resistance is at 0.8187, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement and a falling trend line, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 0.8255. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.8067 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 0.7998.

Positioning is inconclusive for the time being. Entering long seems premature absent confirmation on a break of trend line resistance. On the other hand, a short trade is unattractive from a risk/reward perspective with prices sitting too close to support. We will remain flat for the time being.
