NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Kiwi Short Position Triggered

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Kiwi Short Position Triggered

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.7513
  • Support: 0.7406, 0.7332, 0.7246
  • Resistance:0.7547, 0.7608, 0.7696

The New Zealand Dollar corrected higher against its US namesake after seemingly overturning the up move from the March swing low yesterday. A daily close below the 0.7406-18 area (horizontal pivot, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion) exposes the 50% level at 0.7332. Alternatively, a reversal above trend line support-turned-resistance at 0.7547 clears the way for a challenge of 0.7608 (December 9 low, falling trend line).

The corrective rebound has improved risk/reward parameters and we will now enter short, initially targeting 0.7418. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 0.7608. We will book profit on half of the position and move the stop-loss to breakeven (0.7513) once the first objective is reached.
