NZD/USD Technical ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • New Zealand Dollar hits 5-month high but signs of topping remain
  • Negative RSI divergence hints secondary top forming at resistance
  • Close under 0.6425 would suggest long-term downtrend resuming

So far, New Zealand Dollar sellers have been unable to build on early signs of bearish reversal – a seemingly telltale Shooting Star candlestick on a test of dominant trend resistance set from July 2017. Yet a reversal lower may still be in the cards, albeit after the begrudging formation of a secondary top.

A half-hearted attempt at a selloff soon gave way to directionless drift, followed by a formidable foray to the upside. While this move set a higher high, it fell conspicuously short of closing above the Shooting Star peak. Ominously negative RSI divergence now warns of ebbing upward momentum.

This is a pattern that occurs often enough to notice. A topping sequence begins with an initial attempt at peaking, which is then followed by a nominally higher high that fails to confirm a breakout and translates into an adverse RSI signal. This scenario is of course unconfirmed itself for now, but it is plausible.

Major support is clustered in the 0.6425-96 zone, where prior areas of congestion and trend support set from October’s bottom meet. Breaking below that would be a very compelling indication that the long-term downtrend has resumed. Neutralizing it in earnest probably requires a break above 0.68.
