NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Progress Made on Short Trade

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Progress Made on Short Trade

Talking Points:

The New Zealand Dollar began to decline against its US namesake as expected after prices produced a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below the December 18 lowat 0.7680 exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.7580. Alternatively, a move above channel top resistance at 0.7824 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib retracement at 0.7897.

We entered short NZDUSD at 0.7783, initially targeting 0.7680. A stop-loss has been set to trigger on a daily close above the January 12 high at 0.7864. We will book half of the position and trail the stop-loss to the breakeven level once prices reach the first objective.
