The New Zealand Dollar is sliding back toward July lows after failing to make good on an upward push against its US namesake. A daily close below the 0.6443-97 area (23.6% Fibonacci expansion, July 16 low) exposes the 38.2% level at 0.6261. Alternatively, a move above the 14.6% expansion at 0.6556 clears the way for a challenge of the 14.6% Fib retracement at 0.6679.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
