- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.6814, 0.6745, 0.6657
- Resistance:0.6950, 0.7033, 0.7169
The New Zealand Dollar put in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern, hinting a move higher against its US counterpart may be brewing ahead. A daily close above the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.6950 exposes the 23.6% level at 0.7033. Alternatively, a reversal below the June 23 low at 0.6814 clears the way for a challenge of falling channel floor support at 0.6745.
Entering long looks rather tempting from a technical and risk/reward perspective. The fundamental backdrop is worrisome however, with the upcoming set of Trade Balance figures threatening to boost RBNZ rate cut expectations and Greece-linked news-flow threatening to unleash risk aversion and sting the sentiment-geared Kiwi. With that in mind, we will begrudgingly opt to stand aside for now.
