The ascending 20-day moving average (MA) put a floor under the kiwi dollar yesterday, the outlook, however, would turn bullish only if the pair manages to clear the falling channel hurdle, currently at 0.6815.

4-hour chart

  • As seen above, the NZD/USD is trapped in a descending channel for a 12th straight day. A bull breakout, if confirmed, would signal a continuation of the rally from the Nov. 1 low of 0.6514 and could yield a break above the recent high of 0.6883.

Daily chart

  • Over on the daily chart, the pair has bounced off nicely from the ascending (bullish) 20-day MA. The prospects of falling channel breakout, however, would weaken sharply if the spot finds acceptance below the 20-day MA, currently at 0.6767.
