Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
  • Doji highlighted hesitation from traders near 2011 high
  • Absence of bullish patterns casts doubt on potential recovery

The NZD/USD bears have come out of hibernation following a Doji formation near 0.8840 which signaled hesitation from traders to push the pair higher. With bullish reversal patterns lacking at this stage, a daily close below 0.8700 would set the stage for a push to 0.8500.

Similarly a void of bullish signals on the four hour chart casts doubt over the potential for a recovery over the session ahead. Although the pair’s descent seems to have slowed near the psychologically-significant 0.8700 handle. This suggests new shorts may be best served on a pullback to former support-turned-resistance at 0.8720.
