The New Zealand Dollar appears to be resuming the down trend against its US namesake after prices pierced support guiding the bounce from late September. Near-term support is at 0.7767, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 0.7682-7707 area marked by the July 2013 and September 2014 lows. Alternatively, a rebound above the intersection of the channel floor and 14.6% level at 0.7869 clears the way for a challenge of support-turned-resistance marked by the February 2014 low at 0.8051.
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain on the sidelines, waiting for a more compelling opportunity to emerge.
