- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8082, 0.8006, 0.7882
- Resistance:0.8187, 0.8255, 0.8366
The New Zealand Dollar is attempting to recover a foothold back above the 0.81 figure against its US counterpart. A daily close above the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement at 0.8187 exposes the 0.8236-55 area marked by a falling trend line set from early July and the 23.6% level. Alternatively, a reversal below the 61.8% Fib expansion at 0.8082 clears the way for a challenge of the 76.4% threshold at 0.8006.
Positive RSI divergence seems to hint at ebbing downward momentum, suggesting a bottom may be forming. A trade-able reversal requires confirmation on a break of trend line resistance however. With that in mind, we will remain flat for the time being.
