| 1 april, 2014 | 0 kommentarer

Talking Points

  • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Absence of bearish reversal pattern precludes correction at this stage
  • Uptrend remains intact on daily cautioning against shorts

The Kiwi continues to tease at a breakout above the 0.8700 mark following several failed attempts by the bulls to maintain the currency above its 2013 high. While a Doji candlestick suggests some indecision amongst traders, the absence of a bearish reversal candlestick pattern precludes a meaningful correction at this stage.

Drilling down to examine intraday price action; strong selling pressure remains evident near the psychologically-significant 0.8700 handle. However, similarly to the daily chart signs of a pullback are lacking for the present moment.

The Gravestone Doji on the weekly has failed to receive confirmation from a successive down period. With prices in a continued uptrend a break above 0.8665 would favor longs with a target near resistance at 0.8830.
