The New Zealand Dollar continues wait for direction cues, with prices treading water near the 0.77 figure against its US counterpart. Near-term support is at 0.7691, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the intersection of channel floor support and the 23.6% level in the 0.7567-80 area. Alternatively, a break above channel top resistance at 0.7839 clears the way for a challenge of the November 17 high at 0.7974.
An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
