Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.7273
  • Kiwi Dollar breaks below 0.71 figure, hits two-month low vs. USD
  • Short trade remains in play, looking to capture continued weakness

The New Zealand Dollar continues to sink against its US namesake, with prices breaching the 0.71 figure to hit the lowest level in over two months. The pair marked a top and reversed downward after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern, as expected.

Near-term support is now in the 0.6970-85 area (triple bottom, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement), with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 76.4% level at 0.6866. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 0.7080-0.7102 zone (50% Fib, horizontal pivot) exposes 0.7176, the 38.3% retracement.

A short NZD/USD position was triggered at 0.7273 and partial profit has been booked. The remainder of the trade remains in play to capture follow-on weakness. The stop-loss has been adjusted to be activated at the breakeven level (0.7273).
