The New Zealand Dollar is struggling to maintain upside momentum against its US namesake having attempted a tepid recovery. Near-term resistance is at 0.6679, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 0.6791. Alternatively, a push below channel top resistance-turned-support at 0.6581 opens the door for a test of the July 16 low at 0.6497.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
