Forex: NZD/USD Technical Analysis ? Trend Line Marks Resistance

February 5, 2014

Talking Points: NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat Support: 0.8196 (38.2% Fib ret.), 0.8141 (23.6% Fib ret.) Resistance: 0.8241 (50% Fib ret., trend line), 0.8286 (61.8% Fib ret.) The New Zealand Dollar is pausing to consolidate after recoiling upward (as we suspected ). Breaking above resistance at 0.8241, a barrier marked by the 50% Fibonacci retracement and a falling trend line set from mid-January, targets the 61.8% level at 0.8286. Alternatively, a turn below support at 0.8196 - the 38.2% Fib - exposes the 23.6% retracement at 0.8141. Entering long at current levels is unattractive from a risk/reward perspective with prices squarely at resistance. On the other hand, assuming resistance will hold and entering short without a defined reversal signal seems premature. We will remain flat for now until something more compelling is noted.
