New Zealand Dollar: NZD/USD (NZD=X) lowest level in a decade
From the daily chart, we notice on Oct 1 NZD/USD declined to its lowest level in a decade. However, the price remained in the current trading zone 0.6236- 0.6438 indicating to seller’s hesitation to keep pressing the price at this stage.
Additionally, we notice a bullish divergence between (RSI) and the price similar to the one on Aussie Dollar. Hence, NZDUSD could be looking for a test of the high end of the zone contingent on clearing the daily and weekly resistance levels marked on the chart (zoomed in).
That said, any close below the low end of the zone could send NZDUSD towards 0.6136. Although, the daily support level at the Oct 1 low should be considered. See the chart to know more about lower trading zone with weekly support levels to watch in a further bearish scenario.
