FOREXAnalysis: No change: “Wrote last week that “the near term NZDUSD pattern has been clean. A flat is either complete or close to complete. Today’s top is right at the 61.8% retracement of the decline from .8675 but I’m not ruling out another run at the uncovered close from 4/12 at .8586 (close to the 78.6% retracement at .8608) along with the final topping in the S&P.” The NZDUSD came within 1 pip of .8586 on Tuesday. The 78.6% retracement at .8608 or even .8630 still can’t be dismissed…this is the NZDUSD after all and big turns are often the product of many false starts.”

FOREXTrading Strategy: Stay short – “The response at the uncovered close is enough for me to at least start a short position with a stop above .8675…”

LEVELS: .8363 .8398 .8469 .8520 .8561 .8608/30
