NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar Down Trend Ready to Resume?

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar Down Trend Ready to Resume?

NZD/USD Technical Strategy: FLAT

  • New Zealand Dollar bounce capped at trend-defining resistance
  • Shooting Star candle hints at exhaustion, may precede reversal
  • Countertrend line break sought as confirmation to trigger short

The New Zealand Dollar rebounded against its US counterpart as expected but the dominant down trend may be getting ready to resume. The appearance of a daily Shooting Star candlestick at resistance guiding the pair lower since mid-April speaks to indecision, which may precede a bearish reversal.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar Down Trend Ready to Resume?

A turn lower from here sees initial support at 0.6545, the August 15 low. A break below that confirmed on a daily closing basis targets the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 0.6396. Alternatively, a push above the 0.6688-0.6726 area exposes the 0.6851-70 zone (May 16 low, 38.2% Fib retracement).

Turning to the four-hour chart, entering short looks premature. While the near-term ascent has stalled, the series of higher highs and lows set from Augusts’ swing low remains intact. A convincing breach of support overturning this move is needed as confirmation to make for an actionable short trade setup.
