Key quotes

“NZD/USD has recovered strongly from yesterday’s setback, breaking above the key 0.6756 December high and prodding also above the pivotal the July 2019 and January 2020 highs at 0.6789/91. Although we might not see a closing break here at the first attempt, our bias remains for a break higher in due course, which would complete a medium-term base to significantly reinforce our broader bullish outlook, with short-term resistance then seen subsequently at 0.6800/06 – a psychological barrier and 78.6% retracement of the December/March fall – where we would expect to see another initial attempt to hold. Beyond here would see trend resistance at 0.6836/37 next and higher over the medium term.” 

“Support for a near-term fallback moves initially to 0.6777, then 0.6759, which ideally holds to keep the upside bias intact. Beneath here though would see 0.6711 and then the 21 -day exponential average at 0.6688 next.”
