New Zealand Dollar: NZD/USD (NZD=X) technicals indicates buyer’s weakness to rally the price further
From the daily chart, we notice on Friday NZD/USD rebounded then closed below the high end of current trading zone 0.6224 – 0.6438. Same thing happened on Monday, indicating to buyer’s weakness to rally the price further.
Hence, NZDUSD could be on its way for a test of the low end of the zone. Although, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus. Further close below 0.6224 could open the door for more bearishness towards 0.5911. That said, sellers need to pay a close attention to the weekly support levels marked on the chart.
On the other hand, any successful close above the high end of the zone, may push NZDUSD towards the vicinity of 0.6565-55 contingent on clearing the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart.
