NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Kiwi Ready to Turn Higher?

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Kiwi Ready to Turn Higher?

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7763, 0.7661, 0.7497
  • Resistance:0.7973, 0.8051, 0.8138

The New Zealand Dollar is attempting to form a bottom against its US counterpart after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 0.7928-73 area marked by the October 2 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement exposes the February 4 low at 0.8051. Alternatively, a drop below the 14.6% Fibexpansion at 0.7763 opens the door for a test of the 0.7661-82 zone bracketed by the July 8 2013 low and the 23.6% threshold.

The dominant trend has argued in favor of the downside since early July. With that in mind, we will opt not to pursue a long position and look toward any upswing from here as an opportunity to establish short at a more favorable level.
