NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Bounce Hinted But Downtrend Intact

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Bounce Hinted But Downtrend Intact

NZD/USD Technical ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • Near-term NZ Dollar bottom suggested by bullish H&S pattern
  • Any implied gains likely to be corrective within broader decline
  • Four-hour chart warns H&S setup may fail before confirmation

The New Zealand Dollar may be carving out a bottom against its US counterpart. Prices seem to be tracing out a bullish Head and Shoulders (H&S) reversal pattern having tested four-year support in the 0.6197-0.6268 area. Positive RSI divergence points to ebbing selling pressure, bolstering the case for gains.

A daily close above the H&S pattern’s neckline at 0.6349 would confirm the setup, implying a measured upside objective near the 0.65 figure. Critically, that would leave intact the dominant downtrend from July 2017, suggesting the chart setup is telegraphing a corrective bounce rather than a change of trend.

Shorter-term signaling on the four-hour chart might be still more troubling for NZD buyers. Negative RSI divergence has emerged as prices test H&S neckline resistance, implying a loss of momentum. If this is followed by a break back below the 0.6275-87 support shelf, bottoming cues might be neutralized.

Zooming out to the monthly chart offers yet more perspective. Downside progress has understandably stalled ahead of the long-standing 0.5914-0.6197 inflection zone, but this follows a break of 19-year support. Invaliding that structurally bearish development calls for a seemingly distant return above 0.69.
