- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 0.8314, 0.8243, 0.8185
- Resistance:0.8401-34, 0.8511, 0.8548
The New Zealand Dollar may be preparing to bounce against its US counterpart following the formation of a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is in the 0.8401-34 area, marked by the 23.6% retracement and the June 4 low, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8511. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib expansion at 0.8314 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% barrier at 0.8243.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
