NZD/USD may have reached a turning point with a Hammer formation offering a sign of hope for the bulls.

Yet skepticism over a bounce may be warranted given the backdrop of a pronounced downtrend on the daily.

A similar narrative to the daily is evident in intraday trade on the four hour chart. A bounce off the 0.8312 floor has yielded a a Morning Star pattern which signals a shift in sentiment for the pair. The leap over the 0.8343 hurdle opens the potential for a run on the psychologically-significant 0.8400 handle.
