Talking Points:


  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 0.7272, 0.7218, 0.7165
  • Resistance:0.7421, 0.7490, 0.7613


The New Zealand Dollar is in consolidation mode after spiking to the lowest level in four years against its US namesake. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 0.7272 exposes the 50% level at 0.7218.Alternatively, a turn above support-turned-resistanceat 0.7421, the February 24 low, clears the way for a retest of recently broken range support at 0.7490.


Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
