NZD/USD has suffered a steep decline with a Hammer formation near 0.8460 failing to sustain bullish momentum for the pair. Several short body sessions offered a warning that the pair was struggling to gain ground. With reversal signals now lacking the 0.8400 handle is on the cards.

The four hour chart paints a contrasting picture to the daily with a Harami pattern offering a glimmer of hope to the Kiwi bulls. The reversal pattern may see an intraday recovery. However, this may be capped by the nearby 0.8480 barrier.
