Even so, bearish RSI divergence, portrayed by a higher high in prices and lower high in RSI, seems to cap the quote’s short-term upside within the two-day-old rising trend line.

As a result, sellers may target a confluence of the said channel’s support line and an ascending trend line from May 29, around 0.6420/25, during the further downside.

However, a 100-HMA level of 0.6357 might restrict the NZD/USD price’s additional weakness.

Alternatively, the channel’s upper line and February month high, respectively around 0.6495 and 0.6505, could keep the short-term bulls chained.
