NZD/USD Technical Analysis Kiwi/dollar began the week with a drop and bottomed out only at 0.7468, a new line that didn’t appear last week). It then made a U-turn and after a struggle around 0.7650, it managed to close on higher ground. Technical lines from top to bottom: 0.8090 worked as support in June and in July and is the top resistance line. Below, 0.7975 was a long running peak and provided support back in May and in July. It was run through during the downfall. 0.7895 was minor support in May and is minor resistance now. It was tackled also in September. A more important line is 0.7825. It capped the pair three times, in January and in September, and provided support in April. This is an area of struggle. 0.7764 was important support in May and managed to slow down the fall. It is weaker now, after being run through. 0.7655 was significant resistance back in February and also in 2010 and is now support once again. 0.7524 was an important line of support at the beginning of the year, and later switched to resistance. It provided some support in October as well. The fresh low of 0.7468 seen in October is a strong line of support. 0.7350, which was significant support at the end of 2010 and also in February is relevant once again. Further below, 0.720 is another veteran line of support, followed by 0.7100. I am bearish on NZD/USD. The kiwi enjoyed the past week’s relief rally, that came on the back of a suspension of the Greek crisis and positive Non-Farm Payrolls in the US. Nevertheless, the slowdown in China and the double downgrade at home will likely put pressure on the New Zealand dollar.
