NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Kiwi Dips to 13-Month Low

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Kiwi Dips to 13-Month Low

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7697, 0.7597, 0.7418
  • Resistance:0.7798, 0.7887, 0.7998

The New Zealand Dollar continues to face heavy selling pressure, with prices sliding to the lowest level in 13 months. Near-term support is in the 0.7697-0.7708 area, marked by the July 2013 bottom and the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% mark at 0.7597. Alternatively, a turn back above the 50% Fib at 0.7798 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% expansion at 0.7887.

Entering short seems compelling from a technical and a risk/reward perspective but we will opt to pass on the setup. The July 2013 bottom near the 0.77 figure represents a major inflection point and we would prefer to see a conclusive break below that before committing to a trade.
