NZD/USD downside tested again; 0.6600 robust

Technically, a breakout below 0.66 could be on the way to test 0.6515 and the 55 DMA. 0.6236 Sep lows would be the ultimate target ahead of the psychological key support of the 0.6200 level. However, fundamental disappointments on NFP's, on the flip side, would reveal on the upside on the wide 0.6705/20.
