NZDUSD: Narrow Range Continues to Hold

Ilya Spivak

Strategy: Flat


As suspected, the narrow break of support at 0.8193 proved fleeting as prices nudged back into the familiar range that contained NZDUSD since mid-September. The first layer of major resistance remains at a falling trend line set from late-August 2011, now at 0.8342.A break above that exposes the top of a rising channel established from the May 2012 lows at 0.8472. Alternatively, a meaningful push through support targets 0.8047. Current positioning doesn’t offer an actionable trade setup and we will stand aside for now.
