NZD/USD recovery stalled at 0.7960 resistance

FXStreet (Moscow) - NZD/USD  has retreated from Asian high at 0.7961 towards 0.7946 as bullish momentum of early hours is fading away

NZD/USD was one of the big gainers of the week. The pair touched a new monthly high at 0.7996 and finished Friday at 0.7925 after having started Monday at 0.7818. The upside movement was caused mainly by USD bearish correction across the board. NZD/USD is deeply oversold after having lost more than 1000 pips since the beginning of July. In this context healthy correction is very welcome. Kiwi is climbing higher in Asia as investors are reacting positively to the news about potentially increased stimulus in China. On the intraday basis, the resistance is seen at 0.7961 (Asian high) and at 0.7996 (previous week’s high). The support comes at 0.7929 and 0.7900.
