What can we expect from NZDUSD for the new week and what happened on Friday?
NZDUSD on Friday dropped -1.76% to 0.61890. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling. For the week ending 2023-05-12, the pair dropped -1.65% or -104 pips lower.
Looking ahead on Monday, NZDUSD looks bearish as the pair posted lower in Friday trading session.
For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 0.63844 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 0.62511. On the downside, we are looking at week low 0.61800 or 0.61179 (WS1) as immediate support level. NZDUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A close below week low of 0.61800 would indicate selling pressure.
For the month of May, NZDUSD is up by 0.1% or 6 pips higher.
