Talking Points:

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.8433, 0.8396-401, 0.8336
  • Resistance:0.8469, 0.8494, 0.8524

The New Zealand Dollar dropped to the lowest level in over two months against its US namesake, taking out trend support set from late August 2013. A daily close below support at 0.8433, the 14.6%Fibonacci expansion, exposes the 0.8396-0.8401 area marked by the June 4 low and the 23.6% level.Alternatively, a reversal above trend line support-turn-resistance at 0.8469 opens the door for a test of the August 7 high at 0.8494.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
