New Zealand Dollar: NZD/USD (NZD=X) volatility could be heightened

In New Zealand, the RBNZ was quite clear last month when it said the next policy change by the central bank is likely to be a rate cut. Furthermore, last week’s CPI data served as proof that the economy is weakening. Therefore, justifying the rate cut.

Thin trading conditions could also be helping to exaggerate the sell-off. The Australian and New Zealand markets were closed on Friday and Monday. And they close again on Wednesday. If the major banks and institutions are still on the sidelines, volatility could be heightened and small orders could drive the markets violently in either direction.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 0.68.

The projected upper bound is: 0.67.

The projected lower bound is: 0.66.

The projected closing price is: 0.66.

Candlesticks

A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 3 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 3 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 24 white candles and 24 black candles.

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 17.8273. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a buy 11 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 31.66. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 112 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -135.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 11 period(s) ago.

MACD

The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 5 period(s) ago.
