NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar to Bounce from 11-Year Low?

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar to Bounce from 11-Year Low?

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

NZD/USD Technical ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • New Zealand Dollar on pace for the longest losing streak in 4 months
  • Positive RSI divergence hints prices may bounce from an 11-year low
  • Sentiment studies offer mixed signals, leave door open to retracement

The New Zealand Dollar is working on the fifth consecutive day of losses against its US counterpart, a losing streak that would make for the worst performance in four months. A break below the 78.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.5995 appears to initially expose the 100% level at 0.5872. Alternatively, a move back above 0.5995 – now recast as resistance – may set the stage for a retest of the 61.8% Fib at 0.6092.

Zooming in to the four-hour chart warns that downside follow-though may not be as readily forthcoming as the daily bar view suggests. The appearance of positive RSI divergence speaks to ebbing downside momentum and warns that a correction upward might be in the cards. Prices probably need to break falling trend line resistance set from the March 9 high to make the case for upside follow-through however.
