The New Zealand Dollar has launched a spirited recovery after finding a bottom just above support marking the August to September 2015 bottom. Prices are on pace to score the fourth consecutive day of gains, marking the longest winning streak in two months.

Support-turned-resistance at 0.6425 (October 2018 low) marks the first upside hurdle. A daily close above that targets another former support level in the 0.6482-96 area.
