Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer Confirmation Suggests Potential For Gains
  • Recovery Likely To See Sellers Emerge At 0.8600

NZD/USD continues to edge higher after a Hammer formation offered an early indication of a potential recovery for the pair. However, several short body sessions suggests some hesitation from traders. This warrants some skepticism over the potential for a sustained push higher, and suggests recent price action may simply be a corrective bounce. Sellers may look to emerge at the next psychologically-significant level at 0.8600.

The four hour chart highlights a sustained struggle by the New Zealand Dollar to reclaim some of its lost ground. Several short sessions do little to inspire confidence in the idea of a sustained recovery for the Kiwi. A break above 0.8570 would open the 0.8600 handle, while a close under the 0.8515 mark would set the scene for a decline to 0.8480.
