- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Dojisignals hesitation from traders near key resistance
- Absence of reversal signals casts doubt on correction
NZD/USD’s consolidation continues as the pair teases traders near key resistance at 0.8780. While a Hanging Man candlestick warned of a correction for the pair, the bears seemingly lost steam shy of support at 0.8700. With a Doji having formed on the daily signs of indecision from traders is evident, which leaves clear directional signals absent.

The four hour chart offers a clearer picture of the recent range between 0.8720 and 0.8790. A Morning Star formation near the range-bottom offered a bullish reversal signal and helped herald a recovery for the pair in yesterday’s trading. An absence of bearish patterns casts doubt on the potential for a pullback over the session ahead.
