    NZD/USD Keeping Traders In Suspense As Dragonfly Doji Emerges

    Talking Points

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
    • Dragonfly Doji Emerging, Yet Awaits Confirmation
    • Spotlight Remains On The Late Feb Lows At 0.8260

    NZD/USD is struggling to reclaim lost ground with an absence of bullish candlesticks casting doubt on a recovery. A Dragonfly Doji is emerging on the daily, which may offer a sign of hope to the bulls. Yet the key reversal pattern awaits confirmation from the close of the current candle and a successive up-period before being confirmed. This leaves the spotlight on the pair’s late February lows near 0.8260.

    Struggles To Reclaim Lost Ground With Downtrend Intact



    A similar narrative to the daily is present in intraday trade on the four hour chart. Buying interest at 0.8312 has halted the pair’s descent for now as a Bullish Engulfing pattern emerges. A leap over the nearby 0.8343 hurdle would be required to signal the potential for an intraday bounce to 0.8420.

    NZD/USD Hammer Candlestick Offers Hopes For A Corrective Bounce

    Talking Points

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
    • Hammer Candlestick Pattern Offers Bullish Reversal Signal
    • Climb Over 0.8400 Needed To Suggest A Sustained Recovery

    NZD/USD may have reached a turning point with a Hammer formation offering a sign of hope for the bulls. An ensuing up-day and close above the 0.8400 hurdle would be required to signal the potential for a more sustained recovery for the pair. Yet skepticism over a bounce may be warranted given the backdrop of a pronounced downtrend on the daily.

    Hammer Offers Sign of Hope To The Bulls




    A similar narrative to the daily is evident in intraday trade on the four hour chart. A bounce off the 0.8312 floor has yielded a a Morning Star pattern which signals a shift in sentiment for the pair. The leap over the 0.8343 hurdle opens the potential for a run on the psychologically-significant 0.8400 handle.

    NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Trying to Carve Out a Bottom

    Talking Points:

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
    • Support: 0.8330, 0.8283, 0.8206
    • Resistance:0.8401-34, 0.8511, 0.8553-73

    The New Zealand Dollar may be preparing to bounce against its US counterpart following the formation of a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 0.8401-34 area, marked by the 23.6% retracement and the June 4 low, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 0.8511. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.8330 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% barrier at 0.8283.

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

    NZD/USD Doji Ensemble Indicates Caution Near Critical Support

    Talking Points

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
    • Remains At A Critical Juncture Near 0.8260
    • Awaiting Downside Break to Open 0.8060

    NZD/USD continues to skip across the critical 0.8260 barrier with a medley of short body candles suggesting caution from traders. A daily close below the nearby floor would be preferred for entering new short positions, given the context of a downtrend on the daily.

    At A Crossroads Near Critical Barrier


    The Harami noted in the most recent candlesticks report delivered a short-lived bounce for NZD/USD. The emergence of a Gravestone Doji now hints at a pullback for the pair over the session ahead. Buying interest is likely be renewed near the 0.8267 lows.

    NZD/USD Recovery Falters Leaving A Void Of Bullish Candlestick Signals

    Talking Points

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Pending Short
    • Piercing Line Pattern Fails To Find Follow-Through
    • Daily Close Below 0.8060 To Open Aug ’13 Lows

    NZD/USD has resumed its journey lower in recent trade, which in turn has negated a Piercing Line pattern on the daily. As noted in recent reports the potential for a sustained recovery was questionable against the backdrop of a core downtrend. A daily close below the 0.8060 hurdle could open some significant room before buying interest is renewed at the August 2013 low near 0.7750. Whereas, a climb above the 0.8260 hurdle would likely be required to mark a small base for the pair.

    Piercing Line Pattern Fails To Generate Follow-Through



    The four hour timeframe offers greater hopes for a recovery for the Kiwi. A Harami pattern alongside a push beyond intraday resistance (now support) at 0.8120 hints at further gains over the session. Yet within the context afforded by the daily, selling into rallies remains preferred.

    NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Oscillating Around 0.81 Figure

    Talking Points:

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
    • Support: 0.8067, 0.7998, 0.7887
    • Resistance:0.8187, 0.8255, 0.8366

    The New Zealand Dollar continues to oscillate in a familiar range around the 0.81 figure against its US namesake. Near-term resistance is at 0.8187, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement and a falling trend line, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 0.8255. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 0.8067 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 0.7998.

    Positioning is inconclusive for the time being. Entering long seems premature absent confirmation on a break of trend line resistance. On the other hand, a short trade is unattractive from a risk/reward perspective with prices sitting too close to support. We will remain flat for the time being.

    The Weekly Volume Report: Kiwi Turnover Surges

    Talking Points

    • EUR/USD corrects OBV divergence
    • Volume picture remains supportive for USD/JPY
    • Dramatic rise on Kei volume on Thursday

    EUR/USD




    • EUR/USD pierced last year’s low this week to trade at its lowest level since November 2012
    • Daily volume has been in a steady rise since July which bolsters the medium-term downtrend
    • Recent daily volume, however, remains below average and is a potential signal that the trend is in fatigue
    • On-Balance-Volume (OBV) break to new lows support continuation of trend
    • A move through 1.2895 on higher than normal volume is needed to confirm that a more serious counter-trend move is underway

    USD/JPY




    • USD/JPY is in consolidation mode below key long-term trendline resistance near 109.50
    • A steady rise in volume has accompanied the move higher since July
    • The steady rise in On-Balance-Volume is supportive
    • Price move under 107.35 on above average volume, however, would force a re-think of the broader positve bias

    NZD/USD




    • NZD/USD fell to its lowest level in over a year this week
    • Steady volume rise since July is supportive of trend
    • New lows in daily OBV also supportive of trend
    • Dramatic spike in volunme potentially exhaustive
    • A daily close over .8080 on above average volume is needed to shift near-term bias higher

    NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Short Trade Triggered Sub-0.80

    Talking Points:

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy: Short at 0.7909
    • Support: 0.7802, 0.7682, 0.7525
    • Resistance:0.7937, 0.8034, 0.8109

    The New Zealand Dollar may have resumed the down trend against its US namesake after prices violated the series of higher highs and higher lows set from early November. A daily close below the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.7802 exposes the 0.7682-96 area marked by the July 2013 bottom and the 23.6% level. Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib retracement at 0.7937 opens the door for a test of the October 21 high at 0.8034.

    A shallow pull-up from last week’s lows has made for an improvement in risk/reward parameters and we will now enter short, initially targeting 0.7802. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 0.7974. We will take profit on half of the position and move the stop-loss to breakeven once the first objective is met.

    NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Bounce to Yield Short Entry

    Talking Points:

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy:Flat
    • Support: 0.7787, 0.7624, 0.7533
    • Resistance:0.7930, 0.8076, 0.8221

    The New Zealand Dollar launched sharply higher against its US namesake following the RBNZ monetary policy announcement. A daily close above the 0.7897-0.7930area marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement and a falling channel top exposes the 38.2% level at 0.8076. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib at 0.7787 opens the door for a test of the channel floor at 0.7624.

    We will tactically opt against entering long. The markets appear enveloped by seasonal profit-taking on risk-geared positions, as expected. That may bode ill for the sentiment-sensitive Kiwi, meaning the up move might swiftly fizzle. As such, we will remain flat and look for the bounce to yield a selling opportunity in line with the larger trend.

    NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Ready to Breach 0.76 Figure?

    Talking Points:

    • NZD/USD Technical Strategy:Flat
    • Support: 0.7556, 0.7401, 0.7256
    • Resistance:0.7691, 0.7827, 0.7974

    The New Zealand Dollar looks set to test below the 0.76 figure against the US Dollar after narrowly overcoming chart support. A daily close below the 0.7556-80 area marked by the bottom of a falling channel and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion exposes 38.2% level at 0.7401. Alternatively, a reversal back above the 14.6% Fib at 0.7691 opens the door for a test of channel top resistance at 0.7827.

    A very narrow break of support and the Hammer-like structure of the latest candle hint at elevated false breakout risk. With that in mind, we will tactically opt not to pursue a short position at this time and remain on the sidelines, waiting for a more attractive opportunity to present itself.
