Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Piercing Line May Struggle To Find Follow-Through
  • Close Below 0.8400 To Open The 0.8260 Floor

The New Zealand Dollar continues its cautious recovery with a Piercing Line formation in its wake.

While the bullish reversal signal suggests the potential for a corrective bounce, a sustained recovery may prove difficult with the short-term downtrend intact. A push below the nearby 0.8400 barrier would set the scene for a descent towards the mid-February lows near 0.8260.

The four hour timeframe reveals a similar narrative to the daily. The emergence of a Piercing Line pattern indicates the potential for an intraday recovery. Yet with a congestion zone looming overhead a sustained advance may prove difficult.
