  • Daily Close Confirms Break Below Key Support
  • H4 Signals Potential For An Intraday Recovery

NZD/USDhas cracked key support at the 84 US cent figure with key reversal signals lacking on the daily. This sets the scene for a run on the late February lows at 0.8260. A surge in volume also indicates the potential for further follow-through, as has been witnessed in previous cases.

The four hour timeframe presents a divergent narrative to the daily. A Morning Star candlestick pattern is being etched out in intraday trade which may signal a turning point. Critically, the key reversal formation awaits the close of the current candle and a successive up-period to be confirmed. However, a recovery may prove limited given the backdrop painted by the daily.
