Technical Analysis – NZDUSD pulls under Ichimoku lines; bullish bias unbroken     

Posted on December 4, 2020 at 10:13 am GMT

NZDUSD is receding below the flattening blue Kijun-sen line around 0.7054, after a bullish trend off 0.6612 thrusted the pair up towards a 31-month high of 0.7103.

Nevertheless, the short-term oscillators are echoing clues that a deeper negative retracement could unfold before the climb resumes. The MACD, after hovering for some time beneath its red trigger line, [..]

Technical Analysis – NZDUSD surges to fresh 32-month high; strongly positive

Posted on December 2, 2020 at 8:26 am GMT

NZDUSD surged to a new 32-month high of 0.7072 earlier today, continuing the buying interest that started after the pullback off the 0.5470 support level. The price is developing well above the ascending trend line and the 20- and 40-day simple moving averages (SMAs). The MACD seems to be gaining momentum above its trigger line, while the RSI is still hovering around its 70 overbought mark, signaling more cautious trading in the short-term. The pair needs to overcome today’s peak to meet the 0.7160 resistance level, identified by the [..]
