  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer Candlestick Pattern Offers Bullish Reversal Signal
  • Climb Over 0.8400 Needed To Suggest A Sustained Recovery

NZD/USD may have reached a turning point with a Hammer formation offering a sign of hope for the bulls. An ensuing up-day and close above the 0.8400 hurdle would be required to signal the potential for a more sustained recovery for the pair. Yet skepticism over a bounce may be warranted given the backdrop of a pronounced downtrend on the daily.
