- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.6512, 0.6353, 0.6218
- Resistance:0.6679, 0.6791, 0.6973
The New Zealand Dollar is trying to edge upward against its US counterpart after producing a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. A daily close above the 14.6% Fibonacci retracementat 0.6679 exposes the 23.6% level at 0.6791. Alternatively, a move below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.6512 clears the way for a challenge of the 0.6353-0.6400 area (channel floor, 23.6% expansion).
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.
