- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Breakout opens further gains in absence of bearish patterns
- Close above 0.8780 paves the way for an advance on 0.8840
The Kiwi bulls have managed to regain control of prices after earlier signs of hesitation from a Doji formation on the daily. Following a marginal close above former-resistance-turned support at 0.8780 the pair may be primed for a push to its 2011 high at 0.8840. Support for additional gains also stems from an absence of major reversal patterns.

The four hour chart for the Kiwi similarly shows few signs of a correction over the session ahead. A retest of the initial breakout point Doji formation helps to signal further gains for the New Zealand Dollar.
