All Eyes on Key NZD/USD Inflection Point Going Into NFP

Chart Created Using TradingView

Broader Technical Outlook:Last month we highlighted the risk for a pullback in Kiwi heading into the RBNZ interest rate decision with the decline now coming into our final target at slope support / 7155. Note that the pair marked an outside-day reversal candle off resistance at 7300 early in the week, keeping the short-bias in play. That said, the focus is on this confluence support region heading into tomorrow’s key event risk.

Technical Outlook: There’s Power in Parallels - we’ve been tracking this decline for the past few weeks and the pair has continued to respect this slope off the September high. The pair is marking some bullish divergence into these lows and we’ll be on the lookout for a near-term rebound in price.

Heading into tomorrow’s Non-Farm Payrolls release, the immediate short-bias is at risk while above the 100% extension at 7119. Interim resistance stands at 7214/19 backed by 7254 with our bearish invalidation level steady at 7296. Ultimately we would be looking to sell a rally with a break lower targeting subsequent support objectives at 7086, 7050 & the median-line confluence just above the 70-handle.

  • Throughout 2016 SSI has been capped largely capped by the late-January extreme (+1.33) and each time sentiment has stretched into these levels, a low in price was registered shortly after. That said, the recent dynamic suggests that the near-term short-bias is vulnerable as the pair trades into support.
