FXStreet (Moscow) - NZD/USD has recovered to 0.8310 after trying to settle below 0.8300 pivot; the pair set new multi month low at 0.8286 during Asian hours.

No respite for kiwi

NZD/USD has been tumbling down since early July, after topping out at 0.8835. The pair has lost more than 500 pips and this is not the end yet as negative fundamental factors such as disappointing Global Dairy Auction results (-6.0% from previous event) are coupled with bearish technical picture. The pair broke below 0.8300, and daily close below the said level will increase the selling pressure on NZD. Moreover, USD is growing across the board, which is dragging NZD/USD lower too.
