NZD/USD Equidistant Channel In A Strong Downtrend

Nenad Kerkez

The NZD/USD has been dropping consistently within the Equidistant channel versus its counterpart USD mainly due to expectations the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next week while the Reserve Bank of New Zealand keeps its rate low. Additionally, the dairy prices fell in the overnight auction, adding to overall NZD weakness. The POC zone is 0.6935-50 (H4, DPP, equidistant channel top, ATR top) and we might expect new rejection if the price gets within the zone. 1h momentum or 4h close below 0.6890 marks the continuation towards 0.6858 and 0.6840. The ATR has been low but consistent so the NZD could be also suitable for traders who are afraid to trade volatile pairs. more…

Ideally fifth wave will lift price up to around 0.8700 or maybe 0.8800 by the end of the week. more…

NZD/USD: One To Watch Ahead Of Key NZ, US Data

Fawad Razaqzada

Although the Federal Reserve is still the only major central bank looking to increase interest rates, the persistently soft US data of late means a rate rise this year is becoming less and less likely. Yet, the US dollar has managed to regain its poise today despite the release of further disappointing macro pointers from the world’s largest economy. The reaction of the dollar looks suspicious to us, especially ahead of the publication of some important data on Friday. more…

NZDUSD Traders Crying Over Spilt Milk, Could .6400 Be Next?

Matt Weller

If I had told you Tuesday that China’s quarterly GDP would beat expectations, backed up by strong growth in Industrial Production and Retail Sales, you would logically expect NZDUSD to be trading higher. After all, China is New Zealand’s second-largest trading partner behind Australia, which is itself heavily dependent on growth in the world’s largest economy. Unfortunately, this simplified analysis ignores one critical factor: the price of milk. more…
