NZD/USD Technical ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • New Zealand Dollar rebound rejected at 2020 downtrend resistance
  • Downside extension would see initial support above the 0.58 figure
  • Trader sentiment studies hint NZD/USD selling pressure building

The New Zealand Dollar appears to be trying to restart the downtrend prevailing against its US counterpart since the beginning of the year after rejection at resistance marking the move’s upper bound. An earlier attempt at bearish resumption two weeks ago failed to find follow-through but the subsequent recovery has likewise struggled to build lasting momentum.

Confirmation of a break below immediate resistance-turned-support at 0.6069 on a daily closing basis would likewise mark the breach of counter-trend support defining the upswing from the March 19 low. That may mean that a corrective upswing has run its course and the broader depreciation has resumed. Sellers then seem likely to challenge the April 3 swing low at 0.5844.

Establishing a foothold above falling trend line resistance seems like a prerequisite for neutralizing near-term selling pressure. Such a move would be promptly met with support-turned-resistance in the 0.6197-0.6245 zone. Overcoming that would likely put in play a series of back-to-back upside barriers running up toward the 0.65 figure, on route to the structural downtrend top set form July 2017.
