NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Candle Pattern Hints at Gains

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Candle Pattern Hints at Gains

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7129, 0.7024, 0.6930
  • Resistance:0.7151, 0.7194, 0.7299

The New Zealand Dollar rebounded against its US namesake as expected, with a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern now hinting at further gains ahead. A daily close above falling trend line resistance at 0.7151 exposes the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7194. Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% Fib at 0.7129 clears the way for a challenge of the June 5 low at 0.7024.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
