NZD/USD Technical ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • New Zealand Dollar rebounds, may have scope to prolong recovery
  • Retail trader sentiment studies warn selling pressure may be ebbing
  • Long-term chart setup paints gains as corrective, trend as bearish

The New Zealand Dollar launched a spirited recovery against its US counterpart after finding support at a three-month low just under the 0.64 figure. Prices have edged past the midline of the falling channel guiding them lower since the beginning of the year, hinting that a challenge of the upper boundary may be next.

To manage that, buyers will first need to sustain a daily close above support-turned-resistance in the 0.6482-96 area. Securing a foothold above the channel top thereafter would neutralize near-term selling pressure and put structural resistance from July 2017 back in play.

Recent gains notwithstanding, the longer-term setup appears to project a bearish bias. January saw prices recoil on a retest of support-turned-resistance that guided nearly two decades of gains before being broken last year. A bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern warns steeper losses to follow.
