NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Pausing to Digest Advance

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Pausing to Digest Advance

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy:Flat
  • Support: 0.7532, 0.7448, 0.7344
  • Resistance:0.7616, 0.7721, 0.7825

The New Zealand Dollar paused to digest gains against its US namesake having bottomed after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 0.7616, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 0.7680-7721 area marked by a formerly broken range support and the 76.4% Fib. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 50% Fib at 0.7532 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% retracement at 0.7448.

The longer-term NZDUSD trend continues to look bearish, suggesting that recent gains as well as any on-coming near-term gains are corrective. With that in mind, we will stand on the sidelines for now and wait for the move to run its course before entering short once a defined bearish signal emerges.
