NZD-USD: Old-established support back in sight


In mid-November, the New Zealand dollar’s daily chart on the US greenback left an important support zone on the supply side. However, the subsequent price losses were limited.

The medium-term uptrend did not have to intervene in the share price.

A short time later, the chart technical damage could be repaired. The currency pair managed to recapture the sliding zone at 0.6817 / 0.6834 USD. Later on there was a technical countermovement. As a result, the lower downtrend channel line was repeatedly reached. But again, the NZD-USD failed and had to retire again. At the moment the test of said support area is running again. To the north, the aforementioned channel line currently stands at $ 0.6933 and the falling simple 50-day average line currently stands at $ 0.06950.

With a closing price below the technical stronghold at 0.6817 / 0.6834 USD, the medium-term uptrend at the current 0.6760 USD could be in the focus of the technically oriented market participant.
