Click to enlarge: Inflation rate: Sunday, 23:45. New Zealand’s consumer price index rose 2.3% in the fourth quarter of 2010 from the previous quarter and gained 4 % from a year earlier. The reading was in line with expectations. The increase was attributed to a rise in goods and services tax (GST). A more modest rise of 1.0% is predicted. Credit Card Spending: Thursday, 4:00. New Zealand credit card spending rose 5.3% in February on a yearly base from 5.5% in the previous month. This increase was driven by the durables industry which gained 2.5 % and in retail increased 1.3 % during the month. The household sector purchases continue to be weak. A similar rise is expected now. * All times are GMT. NZD/USD Technical Analysis The kiwi began the week quite easily, struggling with the 0.7824 line (discussed last week). It then made a move higher and gradually drifted above resistance lines, eventually breaking the 0.7974 line and closing just under the round number of 0.80. Looking down, there are many lines now. The first and most prominent line was just broken – 0.7975, which was the peak in November. IT’s followed by 0.7875 which provided temporary support and later resistance, when the kiwi was trading higher at the beginning of November, and is a minor line of support now. Lower, we meet the area of struggle – 0.7825, which held the pair twice in recent months and now has a more minor role. Moving lower, we meet 0.7750. This was a peak resistance earlier in the year, remains a minor support line on the way down. It’s followed by 0.7655, which is a stronger line, after capping the pair in October and also a few months ago. Moving lower, the next line of support is only at 0.7523, which is now only a minor line, after being shattered two weeks ago Looking up, the lines are 3 years old – 81 was a peak back in 2007 and is the first high line. It’s followed by the all time high of 82.15 recorded in February and March 2008. This is the ultimate line of resistance. I an bullish on NZD/USD. The current rise of the kiwi is quite healthy. This rally began after New Zealand escaped a recession and as food prices rise. The break above 0.7975 is significant.
