Are you new to FX or curious about your trading IQ?

FOREXAnalysis: The NZDUSD formed a key reversal last Wednesday and inside day on Thursday at the 61.8% retracement of the decline from the February high. The technical combination could be nothing more than congestion before another bull move but my interest is piqued as a bear given the line that extends off of the November and December lows. That line served as resistance in early March. .8416/40 is resistance in the event of additional gains.

FOREXTrading Strategy: Short side might work here but prefer AUDUSD; which has been leading at turns (AUDUSD topped on 1/10, NZDUSD topped on 2/15, AUDUSD bottomed on 3/4, NZDUSD bottomed on 3/13).

LEVELS: .8220 .8279 .8334 .8391 .8454 .8533
