NZDCAD 30min Chart

NZDCAD Testing Range Support Ahead of RBNZ- 9285 Key

Notes: The NZDCAD has held a well-defined range since mid-June and the pair is now testing key support at the lower bounds at 9285/90. This threshold is defined by the July opening rang low, the 61.8% retracement of the May advance and the 38.2% Fibonacci extension off of the 2014 high and will serve as our bullish invalidation level.

Bottom line: We’ll favor buying dips while above 9285/90 with a breach above the weekly opening range high at 9356/63 offering further conviction on long exposure. A break/close below invalidates this particular setup with such a scenario eyeing subsequent targets into more significant support at 9155/75.

Caution is warranted as we head into event risk tomorrow from both Canada and New Zealand with the RBNZ interest rate decision likely to fuel added volatility in kiwi crosses. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week with DailyFX on Demand.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
