  • NZD/USD fails to hold on to the recovery gains.
  • RBNZ Governor Adrian Orr defies calls of negative interest rates after 0.75% cut.
  • 50-hour EMA, a three-day-old falling trend line restricts immediate upside.

NZD/USD drops to 0.6000, after the early-day rise to 0.6151, during the initial Asian session on Monday.

The pair initially cheered the Federal Reserve’s surprise moves to ignore the RBNZ’s 0.75% rate cut. However, the recent decline takes clues from Governor Adrian Orr who turns down the odds of any further moves in the interest rates to the south.

That said, the pair’s U-turn could also be attributed to its failure to cross 50-hour EMA and a downward sloping trend line since March 11, 2020.

The pair currently drops toward May 2009 lows, surrounding 0.5830, on the conditional trading below 0.6000 mark.

Should NZD/USD manages to cross 0.6000, followed by a sustained rise past-0.6150 immediate resistance confluence, 200-hour EMA near 0.6245 could lure the buyers.
