  • NZD/USD regains some positive traction on Monday.
  • The set-up warrants some caution for aggressive traders.

The NZD/USD pair once again showed some resilience below mid-0.6600s and caught some fresh bids on the first day of a new trading week.

The pair recovered a part of Friday’s slide to over one-week lows, albeit struggled to extend the positive momentum further beyond 200-hour EMA.

The mentioned hurdle coincides with 38.2% Fibonacci level of the 0.6554-0.6756 recent move up and should act as a key pivotal point for short-term traders.

Meanwhile, mixed technical indicators on hourly/daily charts haven’t been supportive of a firm direction and warrant some caution for aggressive traders.

Hence, it will be prudent to wait for some follow-through buying beyond the said confluence barrier, around the 0.6675-80 region before placing fresh bullish bets.

On the flip side, the 0.6650-45 area might continue to protect the immediate downside and is closely followed by 61.8% Fibo. support near the 0.6630 region.

Failure to defend the mentioned support levels might now turn the pair vulnerable to accelerate the slide further towards testing the 0.6600 round-figure mark.
