As a result, the sellers are preparing to revisit a 200-bar SMA level of 0.6637 before targeting the monthly low near 0.6600.

However, an extended break of the trend line, at 0.6689 now, becomes necessary to confirm NZD/USD weakness.

Meanwhile, the key Fibonacci retracement levels can offer immediate resistances around 0.6695 and 0.6720 ahead of the recent high near 0.6760.

Though, any further upside past-0.6760 will depends upon how well the bulls manage to cross the monthly high of 0.6790 and remain strong beyond the 0.6800 threshold.
