NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Trend Line Barrier in Focus

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Trend Line Barrier in Focus

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7556, 0.7406, 0.7161
  • Resistance:0.7653, 0.7801, 0.7998

The New Zealand Dollar paused to digest gains against its US counterpart after pushing up against the upper boundary of a five-month downtrend. Near-term trend line resistance is at 0.7653, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7801.Alternatively, a reversal below the0.7556-608 area (December 9 low, 23.6% level) opens the door for a test of the 14.6% Fib at 0.7406.

Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
