NZD/USD traded with losses over the last two weeks, following the pullback of the five-month high of 0.6754 and now, it is creating a downward sloping channel.
Currently, the price is trading slightly above the short-term simple moving averages (SMAs) near the return line of the channel. The RSI on the 4-hour chart is missing direction in the positive area, while the MACD oscillator is moving higher, approaching the zero line. Also, the red Tenkan-Sen keeps flattening below the blue Kijun-Sen line, reducing chances for a meaningful recovery in the short-term.
However, should the price close comfortably below the 20-period moving average (SMA) at 0.6620, that could push the market down to 0.6590, which is the 38.2% Fibonacci of the up-leg from 0.6320 to 0.6754 and which overlaps with the 200-period SMA. Even lower, the 0.6553 support and the 50.0% Fibo of 0.6520 could attract sellers’ attention.
On the other side, an upward break of the descending channel could open the door for the 23.6% Fibo of 0.6652, which stands inside the Ichimoku cloud. More upside pressures could hit the upper surface of the cloud at 0.6678.
In brief, NZD/USD is in a bearish mode in the very short-term timeframe and bullish in the bigger picture.
