Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Harami pattern near 0.8700 suggests the potential for a pullback
  • Dark Cloud Cover signals potential dip in the session ahead

The Kiwi’s recent run has stalled at the 0.8700 handle with a slight pullback offering the formation of a Harami pattern. The signal awaits confirmation from a second down-day which would suggest a correction back to the psychologically-significant 0.8600 level.

Similarly, the four hour chart warns of a continued retreat for the New Zealand Dollar, based on the presence of a Dark Cloud Cover pattern. While the next definitive support rests at 0.8570, some interim buying support may emerge at the psychologically-significant 0.8600 handle.
