Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer May Fail To Sustain Upside Momentum
  • Selling Pressure Looms Overhead At 0.8530

NZD/USD’s prod back above the 0.8460 mark may fail to find follow-through with a Hammer formation lacking confirmation at this stage. A second successive up-day would help validate the reversal candlestick. However, the potential for a sustained recovery is questionable with significant selling pressure likely looming overhead at 0.8530.

The four hour chart offered an early indication of an intraday reversal given the Harami pattern near 0.8420. However, a Doji candlestick denotes hesitation from the Kiwi bulls to push the pair higher. This casts doubt over the potential for a recovery over the session ahead.
