NZDUSD 4-hour Chart by TradingView

What can we expect from NZDUSD today?

NZDUSD on Thursday rose 0.05% to 0.60805. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling in oversold zone.

Updated daily direction for NZDUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above 0.60611 (S1).

Looking ahead today, to see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of last daily high of 0.60974 or trades above daily pivot 0.60793. Break above could target R1 at 0.60986. While to the downside, we are looking at 0.60611 (S1) and daily low of 0.60599 as support levels. NZDUSD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 0.60974 may suggest continuation after recent positive movement.

For the week to-date, take note that NZDUSD is bearish as the pair posted lower by -1.17%.
