The New Zealand Dollar looks vulnerable to deeper losses against its US counterpart after breaking below Augusts’ swing bottom to hit a two-year low. The broader price trend has been by a series of lower highs and lows since mid-April, when a top was established near the 0.74 figure.

From here, sellers are taking aim at support marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 0.6402. A daily close below that opens the door for a test of the 50% level at 0.6302. Alternatively, a move back above the 0.6545-60 area exposes trend resistance in the 0.6605-54 zone.

The short NZD/USD position activated at 0.6680 has been scaled up after Augusts’ bottom gave way. The overall cost basis for the trade is now 0.6630. A stop-loss will be activated on a discretionary basis, although a close above trend resistance would go a long way toward invalidating the dominant bearish bias.
