NZD/USD extends the pullback, eyes 0.6600

FXStreet (Córdoba) - The New Zealand dollar continues to edge lower versus the greenback as currencies linked to commodities underperform in a quiet session in between major economic events.

NZD/USD has dropped more than 150 pips from Friday’s highs, when it reached a 1-month peak of 0.6787, having already retraced half of last week’s gains in one day. At time of writing, NZD/USD is trading at 0.6640, down 1.54% on the day, having struck a low of 0.6637 in recent dealings.

Next Wednesday, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will decide on monetary policy. Being a close call, most analysts expect the RBNZ to cut the main rate by 25 bps to 2.50%, for fourth time this year, the last one being in July.

NZD/USD levels to watch

In terms of technical levels, next supports are seen at 0.6607 (Dec 3 low), 0.6596 (Nov 26 high) and 0.6573 (Nov 4 low). On the flip side, resistances could be found at 0.6672 (100-hour SMA), 0.6741 (Dec 7 high) and 0.6787 (Dec 4 high).
