Key quotes

“NZD/USD surged higher yesterday following the completion of a bull ‘triangle’ continuation pattern, closing above the crucial cluster of medium-term resistances at 0.6792/6806 and coming to a pause at the 2017 downtrend at 0.6847. This marks a break of a major inflection point and the completion of a large ‘head and shoulders’ base, all of which suggests that we are seeing the resumption of the core bull trend.” 

“A close above 0.6847 would now see a further acceleration of the upside momentum with resistance then seen initially at at 0.6900, ahead of 0.6970.” 

“Support is seen at 0.6808/6796, which ideally holds to keep the immediate upside bias intact. Removal of here though would see a move back to 0.6753/46, ahead of 0.6710/6699.”
