- Kiwi Dollar may be forming double top at June high vs. US counterpart
- Waiting for confirmation, improved risk/reward setup to enter short trade
The New Zealand Dollar has settled into a range above the 0.42 figure against its US counterpart after prices failed to break out on a test of June’s swing high. Early signs of negative RSI divergence point to ebbing upside momentum and hint that a reversal downward may be ahead.
Near-term support is at 0.7208, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. A break below that targets a rising trend line at 0.7166, followed by the 23.6% level at 0.7117. Alternatively, a daily close above the June 24 high at 0.7298 opens the door for a test of the 61.8% Fib at 0.7355.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. Furthermore, negative RSI divergence is not a sufficient bearish reversal signal by itself without further confirmation. With that in mind, opting for the sidelines seems prudent for now.
