NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Six-Week Trend Line Broken

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Six-Week Trend Line Broken

Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Kiwi Dollar breaks near-term trend support, hinting at bearish reversal
  • Risk./reward considerations argue against triggering short trade for now

The New Zealand Dollar broke rising trend support set from late July, hinting a downward trend reversal against its US counterpart may be in progress. Follow-through has been limited however, with sellers unable to produce meaningful momentum thus far.

Near-term support is at 0.7214, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 38.2% level at 0.7111. Alternatively, a recovery above trend line support-turned-resistance at 0.7278 paves the way for a challenge of 0.7325, the July 12 high.

Prices are too close to immediate support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, opting to remain on the sidelines appears prudent for the time being until the pair offers an actionable opportunity to establish exposure.
