The New Zealand Dollar broke through the bottom of a range that has contained prices since mid-November. Near-term support is in the 0.7682-96 area, marked by the July 2013 bottom and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposingthe 38.2% level at 0.7525.Alternatively, a reversal above the14.6% Fib at 0.7802clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 0.7937.
While a short position seems compelling, we will tactically opt to stand aside for now. As a relatively high-yielding currency, the Kiwi can show outsized sensitivity to risk sentiment trends, which may turn volatile as high-profile event risk (ECB, NFP) looms ahead. This could derail chart positioning and we prefer to wait out the results rather than commit to a directional bias at this point.
