The bearish argument for NZD/USD has to be made at this level. First, the rally at the beginning of this week didn’t even allow for the Kiwi to break the 38% retracement of .7306 of the spike high to .7447 to the low of .7208. A shallow bounce means that the risk is for a move lower now.
Another issue that the Kiwi has is that last week we may have put in a ‘false” breakout above the .7320 level, and this week (thus far) we have not been able to break that level either. Next, stocks (in the U.S.) look weak and with risk appetite weighing the risk may be for the NZD/USD to follow lower and break the five-month trendline. The 50-day moving average is at .7210, and that is this week’s lows and multi-month trendline. A break of this level should allow for a move back to .7100 and possibly lower.
