Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence of Reversal Signals Suggests Recovery Unlikely
  • Daily Close Below 0.8400 To Open The 0.8260 Floor

The New Zealand Dollar’s descent has encountered some buying support near the critical 0.8400/20 floor. However, a void of bullish reversal signals suggests a recovery may be unlikely. A push past the nearby 0.8400 barrier would set the scene for a descent towards the mid-February lows near 0.8260.

Several short body periods on the four hour chart suggests indecision from traders near the 0.8400/20 support zone. However, at this stage candlestick reversal signals remain lacking which casts doubt over the potential for a corrective bounce.
