NZD/USD find support at 100/200 SMA on the 1hr/30 mins sticks

FXStreet (Guatemala) - NZD/USD is on a bearish cycle and testing the 100 SMA at 0.6689 at time of writing where just below, the 200 SMA lingers as a cautionary level at 0.6680.

Fundamentally, the greenback is garnering some demand in Asia at the start of this week while the FOMC is on the lips of all desks, analysts economists who are awaiting the meeting with expectations of a Fed hike, but with the possibility of a dovish tone which could be bad news for the greenback.

Meanwhile, commodities will drive the drive as well and oil will be closely monitored this week having made new lows of late with the Saudis keeping the taps fully open. So this week, NZ GDP and FOMC are what to watch for.
