- NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
- Piercing Line Pattern Awaiting Confirmation
- Close Below 0.8400 To Open The 0.8260 Floor
NZD/USD’s recovery has yielded a Piercing Line candlestick pattern on the daily which awaits confirmation from a successive up day. 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.
