Chart of the Day – NZD/USD

The last couple of days of trading shows that there is clearly a resistance that has built up at $0.7740.

This has capped the rally in the past two weeks and is holding back a move towards the key January high at $0.7890. Unlike the Aussie which exploded higher yesterday, the Kiwi seems to be a little more constrained.

The daily momentum indicators cannot quite seem to breakout either with the RSI bumping its head up against the 60 level repeatedly. It also seems as though the MACD and Stochastics cannot break the shackles either. Even though the near term outlook is positive, this still leaves me concerned that this remains a bear market rally that is likely to be sold into. I would therefore look at playing small near term long positions but ultimately be ready for a bigger short position should a medium term sell signal come through.

NZD/USD extends below 0.7600

Currently, the NZD/USD pair trades lower by -1.50% at 0.7554, testing session lows at 0.7549. NZD/USD accelerated losses and inches closer towards 0.75 barrier after rather surprising tone to its monetary policy forward guidance by RBNZ’s Deputy Governor McDermott continues to keep the kiwi undermined ahead of next week’s policy meet.
Moreover, China's lowest manufacturing PMI in 12 months further dragged the NZD/USD pair lower. HSBC's Chinese Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) slipped from 49.6 in March to 49.2 this month, according to the preliminary index reading released on Thursday. Markets had expected the index to read 49.4 in April.
Meanwhile, traders now focus on US new home sales and unemployment claims data due later in the day for fresh cues on the pair.

Kiwi Dollars Recede

New Zealand central bank kept interest rates at current levels, but at the same time gave a reason to believe that in future we can expect its decline. This fact led to the kiwi sale off. Therefore, the New Zealand dollar fell to 0.7313. The Australian dollar followed the lead of Kiwi, which makes sense due to the possible rate reduction of the Central Bank of Australia, Forex experts said.
