  • Uh oh. Another financial product/meme pivot. I think Elon is just a BTD kind of guy who is in tune with the social trading trends and wants to bring the retail crowd along with him. Would fit the essence of Tesla and Space X https://t.co/EP9zj1rXzU

  • I feel the LaserEyes trend is a more effective social spread because of the visual impact. Kind of disappointed the community hasn't gotten a more tangible visual cue for BTD / BTFD. Or maybe there is one and I'm just behind the trend....which happens a lot recently

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Trying to Clear Path Above 0.80

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Trying to Clear Path Above 0.80

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7831, 0.7682, 0.7525
  • Resistance:0.7937, 0.8034, 0.8109

The New Zealand Dollar moved higher against its US namesake as expected after prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7937 exposes the October 21 high at 0.8034. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% level at 0.7831 opens the door for a test of the 0.7682-96 area marked by the 23.6% Fib expansion and the July 2013 bottom.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
