NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar May Fall From 2020 Trend Top

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: NZ Dollar May Fall From 2020 Trend Top

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

NZD/USD Technical ANALYSIS: BEARISH

  • NZ Dollar struggling to build lower but 2020 resistance holding
  • Initial support at 0.5827, key trend resistance near 0.61 figure
  • Sentiment studies hinting at bearish bias but conviction suspect

The New Zealand Dollar has struggled to find immediate downside follow-through after breaking support guiding the upswing against its US counterpart since late March. That is when the Fed’s firefighting efforts began to beat back a USD shortage locking up global credit markets. Nevertheless, prices remain firmly capped by resistance establishing the downtrend since the beginning of the year.

From here, a daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.5827 may set the stage for a challenge of the 38.2% level at 0.5639. Invalidating near-term bearish cues probably requires the pair to establish a firm foothold above trend line resistance, which would at this time amount to a close above the 0.61 mark. Such a move is likely to expose support-turned-resistance in the 0.6197-0.6245 zone next.
