NZD/USD Consolidation Continues As Doji Highlights Hesitation

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Dojicandlesticks highlight hesitation from traders
  • Absence of bearish patterns casts doubt on pullback

NZD/USD’s consolidation continues as several Doji candlesticks above 0.8740 suggest hesitation from traders to lead a breakout for the pair. An absence of outright reversal patterns and lack of a spike in retail trading volume casts doubt on the potential for a correction.

Traders should note the upcoming US NFPs report hold the potential to spark significant volatility for NZD/USD, which could act to negate technical signals offered.

The four hour chart reveals the emergence of a narrow range between 0.8730 and 0.8790. Typically such thin corridors do not persist for extended periods. However, with candlestick signals somewhat lacking, the possible direction of an eventual break is clouded.
